New York’s Coolest Pool
Summer Fun in the City’s Backyard
This summer, I want to escape the city’s heat without escaping the city. What is your favorite pool in Manhattan?
|Every summer, even the most die-hard New Yorkers skip town to play beach blanket bingo. But if you want some fun in the sun without bumper-to-bumper traffic on the L.I.E., check out one of AskMelissa’s best kept secrets: the rooftop pool at the Hotel Gansevoort.
The hotel’s rooftop is surrounded by glass, and the view is pure Sex & the City. The pool itself is 45-feet long and comfortably heated—great for laps or lazing around—while underwater music and colored lighting turn the pool into a party! The rooftop bar, Plunge, takes care of the cocktails.
So, pull up a lounge chair, and park for the day. To use the pool, purchase a $50 day pass, or sign up for a fabulous spa package, pool included. We love the renewal day package. For $250, you get a choice of massage or facial and one of the mind/body classes, like core fusion or music yoga. Follow with a dip in the pool, and you’ll emerge refreshed and exhilarated—and you’ll never have to rinse sand out of your suit.
Special: Mention AskMelissa.com to receive 10% off all spa packages Monday–Thursday (9:00 A.M.–6:00 P.M.) through September 30.
