The weather in NYC has been boiling and the idea of cooling off is very appealing.
Fortunately there are lots of public and private swimming pools you can go to, see NYC Swimming Pools
If you’re going to use public pools there are some rules to follow and some sensible things to do to make your visit as pleasurable as possible.
Firstly check out times of opening and closing and also when specific age groups are using the pool as you won’t be getting any lap swimming done when the pool is awash with lots of young kids.
You can’t take food, glass bottles, electronic devices or newspapers into the pools and it would be prudent to leave jewelry and credit cards at home. For whatever reason if you want to wear a shirt to protect you from the sun it must be white. And bring a lock for your locker at the pool.
It’s also good to check up on the size of the pool and whether there are any rules about sessions in pools which would mean a specified number of people can enter the pool for a designated period such as an hour. Enjoy, NYC’s swimming pools are a great resource for everyone. LIKE cooling off in the hot weather.
