Facility Reviews
By far the best pool I've found for out-of-towners in New York. Pool 1 appears always to be open and dedicated to lap swimmers.
Rating: 6 on a scale of 10. Cool, narrow, crowded, best for laps late at night or mid-afternoon.
Its one drawback is that it gets very crowded at peak times. As a New Yorker, I can say it is one of the best run lap swimming facilities in the city. The lanes are speed-graded by posted times, the temp is 80º - 81º F (27ºC), and the pool is open for laps all day. I'd give it an 8 or 9.
Very nice place. Not too crowded on a January Monday evening. [January, 2014]
