With a heat wave upon us, many New Yorkers are seeking safe and relaxing ways to stay cool down without being cooped up inside their apartments. Public pools are open throughout the city with safety precautions in place; but for those who want to escape crowds and forgo the hassle and expense of leaving the city, living in a building with its own amenity swimming pool is one of the safest and easiest options to beat the heat.

A number of Manhattan and Brooklyn buildings offer private outdoor apartment pools and shared rooftop amenity pools. Across the Hudson River on Jersey's Gold Coast, several rentals are topped with swimming pools. Many are also offering leasing incentives, more attainable rents as compared to Manhattan, and stunning views of the world's most iconic skyline.

Up to 2 months free rent on select units

Unlike Manhattan and Brooklyn, Jersey City benefits from a plethora of large development sites with access to opportune views. To that end, many new buildings feature sprawling rooftop amenities with an outdoor swimming pool and deck. A new rental high-rise named DVORA 175 is no exception. Spearheaded by Shuster Development, the 148-unit venture is a follow-up to The Oakman and its forward-thinking aspects make it a paragon for multi-family development in the metro region.
Designed by the astute firm of Fogarty Finger Architects , the 148-unit building rose from an L-shaped lot at 175 Second Street in Jersey City's burgeoning downtown. The designers provided a modern, alternating facade of two-story high window bays, integrated balconies, and a distinctive roofline. To further add interest to the urban realm, the team specified an exterior clock along a lot-line wall.
Elevated within its 14 stories is its collection of one- to three-bedroom residences with unique layouts that include dens, garden units, and of course penthouses. Many apartments will have balconies and unobstructed views of the city, and other thoughtful and in-demand features include custom built-in closets, kitchens with fully-integrated appliances, and in-home washers and dryers. The high-end finishes serve as the icing on the cake. Among them are 7”-wide wood plank floors, Kohler fixtures, Blomberg appliances, and smart thermostats to control central heat and air conditioning.
Last but not least are the building's lifestyle and wellness amenities. Topping the structure is La Playa, a Miami-inspired resort experience that includes a rooftop pool, private cabanas, BBQ areas, outdoor showers, and green space. Other resident perks include a fitness/wellness center, co-working spaces, keyless-entry doors, and a custom-built virtual concierge.
