Dive in NYC!

Oh baby, it’s the first summer weekend with access to all public pools in New York City and I am feeling excited, especially because this weekend’s going to be a heat wave!

I am really looking forward to taking a dip in Williamsburg’s once defunct McCarren Pool that found a second-life as a popular Brooklyn concert venue, and had since gotten lucky with a $50 million dollar injection of funds to transform itself yet again, becoming one of New York’s most anticipated summer hotspots. (Open 11am-7pm, free admission)

I also want to check out the new 1,500 square foot "pop-up" pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 2, which has a stretching view of the Manhattan skyline. (Open 10am-6pm, free admission)

Another spot that’s on my list is Central Park’s Lasker Pool, located mid-park between 106th and 108th Streets and overlooks Harlem Meer. (Open 11am-7pm, free admission)

Summer Walks in Central Park

I love walks around The Pond in Central Park: listening to the sax melodies, watching children fish, resting in leafy shade. It’s one of my favorite places to enjoy the summer season in New York City.
