After weeks of waiting, and the summer's first heat wave, New York's public pools officially opened on June 27, 2024. The opening comes one day after New York City schools closed for the summer and shortly after Mayor Adams announced "Let's Swim NYC," the biggest funding in the city's public pools in over 50 years.
New York’s new developments have no shortage of indoor pools, but outdoor pools offer the atmosphere of a community pool, not to mention outstanding views and lounge areas that would be the envy of most elite country clubs. And for the ultimate in luxury, we look at apartments that come with their own private pools.

East Village condominium The A Building got its name for its address near Avenue A. However, one could be forgiven for interpreting it as a commentary on the building's amenities: A full-time doorman and live-in superintendent are on hand to cater to residents' needs, and a rooftop swimming pool is reminiscent of that at a luxury hotel.

Brooklyn Point may have been dethroned as the borough's tallest building by The Brooklyn Tower (see below), but its status as home of the highest infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere remains unchallenged. It is surrounded by a sun deck, an outdoor dining area, a stargazing observatory, and an outdoor movie screening area, though they may struggle to compete with panoramic city and river views.
