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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

One of the most crowded pools in the city - if not the country; the place is packed. Most of the time one or two lanes are closed for classes or family swims.
Most times, the pool is not particularly crowded, I have no idea where the first reviewer's idea came from.
At lunch the pool was not crowded. The 5th floor location and huge windows have great views. Seemed cooler than the 82º - 84º reported.
The users of the pool have evolved since it opened 11 years ago, and it is better run, so it is attracting more serious swimmers and it is less crowded. There are far fewer leisure swimmers than there used to be. A slight reduction in the usual water temperature was probably a big contributor to the improvement.

This may be the nicest indoor pool in Manhattan - six floors up, with floor-to-ceiling windows along two walls. I swim laps there three times a week. Usually, I share a lane with two or three other swimmers, occasionally with four, rarely with five. The locker facilities are excellent (bring your own lock). Guests a the Milburn hotel, nearby, have access to the JCC facilities. Great staff.

I love this pool! It's well-lit with views of the Upper West Side, and the acoustics are regulated. There's a second, smaller pool with a variable depth that's used for therapy and training
[October, 2014]
The pool is very clean and heavily used, especially for swim instruction; but it's not that crowded in the evenings.
