Flipping into a cooler space as the city pools open

pool-2 pool-1

New York City’s public outdoor pools — including the one at the Tony Dapolito Rec Center, above — opened for the summer last Thursday on July 4. And it couldn’t have come at a better time, with the city gripped in a heat wave. The Parks Department recreation center pools are open daily from 11 a.m. to  7 p.m., with a break from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for cleaning. There is also lap swimming from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at select pools, including Asser Levy on E. 23rd St., Hamilton Fish on Pitt St. and Tony Dapolito on Clarkson St. Swimmers are required to wear a bathing suit and are advised to bring a combination lock to safeguard their belongings.
