If you’re looking to cool off this summer, but don’t have the time or the money for a beach retreat, there are plenty of places right here in the city that are just a train or bike ride away. Throw yourself a pool party at one of the 50 outdoor pools our city has to offer. Swim season begins June 28th and below are some of our favorite (and free!) spots to take a dip in the five boroughs.
New! The Brooklyn Bridge Park Pop-Up Pool opens June 27 at Pier 2!
