Waiting in line for an hour to get into a public pool just not your thing? The summer in NYC can be a brutal place for little ones and sometimes they can get cooped up in the air conditioning and not have an opportunity to play outdoors. With a little bit (and sometimes a lot) of money you can splurge on private pool swimming in Queens NY. Here is the skinny:
A day pass is a good solution to public pool swimming. They are not cheap but considering that you would otherwise take a train/car to the beach it becomes an equal trade on gas and tickets. Many of the condos in Queens open their doors to non residents for swimming during the summer. Check with your local high rise and see if they will charge you a day pass fee to
swim with the kids.
