It's finally pool season in New York City. Not only are the temperature reading outside telling us so, but this past Tuesday, the New York City Parks Department opened all 51 public outdoor pools in the five boroughs despite the a nation-wide lifeguard shortage. The pools will be open until Labor Day weekend, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Find a full list of the city's free public outdoor pools here.

For those of you not jumping at the idea of submerging in a public pool, certain residential buildings have made it a more intimate and pleasant experience with elevated natatoriums that allow swimmers to do their laps while enjoying incredible light and city views. And unlike the city's public pools, which will close after Labor Day weekend, residents of the following buildings will have access all year long. We take a look at some of the most beautiful sun-kissed indoor pools in Manhattan.
