Swim NYC

Now that summer is upon us, the heat and humidity are pounding down without mercy. The most enjoyable way to relieve the stress, naturally, it to take a swim. Some of you might be lucky enough to have, or know people who have, pools in their backyard or in their buildings. But for the rest of us stiffs, we need to search them out.

There are two routes to this: you can find and go to one of the cities fifty-four public pools. The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation has a wonderful list of all the pools in the city with detailed information on each. Or you can pony us some cash and hit one of our city's hotels where you can pay for an all-day pass to use their pools. Some of these hotels include spa packages and range from as little as $60 to as much as $250 (including massages, etc.)

There's also the beach, which I blogged about recently, but if you're not a fan of salt water or sand, these are probably the best ways to cool off this summer.
