When you can't make it to the Hamptons...
In an ideal world we would pack our suitcases and head out to the Hamptons—or on a long weekend getaway—whenever the mood strikes (and, let’s face it, our yearning for a great escape is always bubbling just beneath the surface). But then reality sets in, and some summer weekends have us bound to the bright lights of the big city.
While in the concrete jungle, one shouldn't have to forgo poolside-lazing and mellow mingling. Luckily, New York City is full of sun-basking opportunities high-up above the bustle of its streets. These chic spots to take a dip, while right above our heads and in some of the city's top hotels, might as well be miles away with their self-contained tropical vibes and holiday atmosphere.
Here, a discerning list of the “who’s who” of NYC pools that should be on your radar this summer. If you’re pining for a getaway this coming season, look no further than these pools, set right in the heart of of our favorite concrete metropolis.
