Rental Building News and Offers

American Copper Buildings Outdoor Pool (Citi Habitats) American Copper Buildings Outdoor Pool (Citi Habitats)
Have you ever wondered why New York City is so humid when other coastal cities are so much drier? The East Coast obviously has a lot of water frontage but what makes the east coast excessively humid is not the amount of water but the temperature of our oceans. The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans’ currents flow clockwise. For the Atlantic, that means our water comes up from the equator so we have much warmer water than the Pacific Ocean, which flows from the northern Pacific. Hence, New York City in August feels like living in a swamp. It's enough to make one seek out the closest pool possible, but only 15 of the city's 53 public pools have opened with restrictions in place owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite the high value of per square foot prices in New York City, many new residential buildings are providing luxurious pools as amenities to add value and cache to their developments. Here is a list of the coolest pools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens to turn our sticky summer into a five-star spa experience.
