Top 10 Rooftop Pools in New York City

Beat the summer heat by taking a dip in one of these rooftop pools while soaking in panoramic skyline views. Here's CityRealty’s list of the Top 10 Rooftop Pools in New York City.

#1 - Brooklyn Point, 138 Willoughby Street

Condo in Downtown Brooklyn

Brooklyn’s tallest building culminates with a goosebump-inducing experience atop the 68-story slab--the highest infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere. The 27-foot-long pool will be open and heated from the spring to the fall, offering unobstructed 360-degree views.

#2 - Central Park Tower, 217 West 57th Street

Condo in Midtown West

The tallest apartment building this side of the Atlantic Ocean reserves its largest outdoor space for an expansive outdoor deck that comes with a lawn, lounge chairs, curtained cabanas, and one of the city’s largest outdoor rooftop pools.

#3 - The Copper, 626 First Avenue

No fee rental in Murray Hill

Though these SHoP Architects-designed towers are best known for the pool within their skydeck, they also offer an outdoor rooftop pool that is just as hip. Interestingly, the pool also offers membership to the public, which starts at $1,600 for the summer.

The 44-story tower, once the second-tallest skyscraper in Queens, stands at the western vanguard of the rapidly-growing Court Square skyline. The pool deck atop the Long Island City rental boasts unobstructed panoramas in all directions, most notably to the west, where the Manhattan skyline stretches in full view from Downtown to the island’s upper reaches.

#5 - 555Ten, 555 Tenth Avenue

No fee rental in Midtown West

The swimming pool atop the 56-story rental looks right upon the ever-growing skyline at nearby Hudson Yards, the occasional ocean liner floating down the Hudson River, and a setting sun that basks the distant New Jersey horizon in an orange light.

#6 - The Eugene, 435 West 31st Street

Managed by Manhattan West

#7 - 420 Kent Avenue

No fee rental in Williamsburg

The rental complex at 420 Kent sits right on the East River, so swimmers at the rooftop pool look straight straight onto the Williamsburg Bridge that leaps across the water toward the Manhattan skyline on the opposite side.

#8 - 50 United Nations Plaza

Condo in Turtle Bay/United Nations

The cozy pool nestles into a setback atop Sir Norman Foster’s 43-story tower, and opens south upon a panorama that spans the United Nations, the World Trade Center, the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, and the supertall tower rising at One Vanderbilt across from the Grand Central Terminal.

#9 - BKLYN AIR, 309 Gold Street

No fee rental in Downtown Brooklyn

The swimming pool takes up most of the roof deck atop the 36-story rental tower in Downtown Brooklyn and opens into three directions that stretch from Prospect Park to Lower Manhattan and the Harbor.


#10 - The Churchill, 300 East 40th Street

Condop in Murray Hill

As a child, Philip Burnbaum was raised on the Lower East Side, where families took to the rooftops to escape stifling summer heat in the tenements. When he became one of New York’s preeminent high-rise condo architects of the twentieth century, Birnbaum used his childhood experience to animate rooftops across the city. When you dip into the spacious pool atop the 33-story Churchill, you know that it was conceived by someone who knows how to enjoy a New York rooftop to the fullest.
