American Copper Buildings Outdoor Pool (Citi Habitats) American Copper Buildings Outdoor Pool (Citi Habitats)
New York City in August is swampy. Have you ever wondered why it’s so darn humid here 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, NYC in August feels like living in a swamp.

August is the perfect time to find the closest pool possible. 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 10 cool pools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens to turn our sticky summer into a five-star spa experience.
