The Athletic & Swim Club at Equitable Center


Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

Seriously uncrowded at 1 P.M.!
It is a nice clean, convenient club, with a tasty breakfast and lunch spot right in the club.
The pool facilities are always clean and organized. It is NOT lap swim but shared lanes with 30 minute limits if there are people waiting (which is enforced). While peak morning hours see a lot of swimmers, I have never had to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes. At the middle of the day it's absolutely empty. I have heard from others who have tried different pools in the city that this is the cleanest in terms of water quality.

Great facility. Clean pool. I went at 9 AM on a weekday and had a lane all to myself.

Great midtown pool! Not crowded at 9 AM. The front desk sold me a day pass without fuss. I think that I mentioned TripAdvisor or Yelp and got a major discount (down to $10 or $15). Huge and well-kept locker room. Showed up with my own suit, goggles and cap and they provided the rest.

This is a great facility in the heart of Midtown. They offer lap lane reservation with two swimmers per lane.

The club is very clean with all amenities you'd want at the pool, in the locker room, and in the cardio/strength areas. The day pass was $30, but the front desk said they're willing to provide a multi-day pass more economically. I was only there for a day, so didn't check out what that would be, but highly recommend it. See Subterranean swimsuit blahs for a bit more detail and pictures.
