Good news for swimmers: Two new pools open in New York City

Lap pools are a serious commodity in a city so starved for space. So, swimmers, pay attention.

New York Health & Racquet Club just kicked of 2014 by opening two newly renovated pools, at both its 13th Street and Whitehall locations. The gym chain is known for its swimmer appeal, and the openings mean that all nine of its New York City locations now have pools. (Note: The Astor Place pool is not for backstrokers, it’s more of a “relax in whirlpools and waterfalls” situation.)

The Whitehall opening—with a 60-foot pool and whirlpools—is especially significant, since three of the club’s floors were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, and the gym has been getting the location back in shape ever since. To celebrate the opening of the new 60-foot-pool, whirlpools, and locker rooms, the club’s hosting a (figurative) “Day at the Beach,” on March 12, with food and festivities for members (and non-members who want to check out the clubs).

Bonus: the pools are also saltwater, so no showing up at the office post-triathlon-training reeking of chlorine. —Lisa Elaine Held
