One of the city’s massive WPA-era projects, the Red Hook Pool offers lap hours on weekdays (7–8:30am, 7pm–dusk). You’re required to register online or poolside prior to your session, but participation is gratis and on-site aquatic specialists are available to record your lengths. Those racking up the most laps win prizes like T-shirts at the end of the summer. Best of all, lap swims are 18 and over, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to squeeze in a workout without a crowd of tots.
