This NYC pool makes you feel like you're swimming in a painting

One of the most visually striking publicly-accessible pools in New York is back this summer with a brand-new design. 

Following up on last year’s rainbow-themed iteration, the "pop-up pool club" at Manhattan Park has gone in a more celestial direction this year, invoking the ocean more than the sky. The pool has been covered with an 8,000-square-foot painting by Manhattan-based artist Gregg Emery entitled, "Waves off Roosevelt Island."

The artist cites many sources of inspiration for the design including the opening pool scene in Goldfinger, the famous Japanese print, “Great Wave off Kanagawa and the natural geography of Roosevelt Island itself. The pop-up pool, now in its third year, is the brainchild of Citi Habitats New Developments and designers K&Co and Pliskin Architecture.

The pool will be rocking its fresh new look all summer on Roosevelt Island, and is accessible to non-residents of the building by purchasing a day pass. Weekday passes cost $35, while passes on the weekend run $50 per person.
