It costs money, but it’s one of the best amenities you can buy with your rental apartment in New York. A building with a swimming pool. The buildings and the pools come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have a luxury rent to go with them.
Take, for example the Edge, the best-selling waterfront development in Williamsburg. The pool area has sliding glass doors, which means it can be open in summer and closed (and heated) for winter use. The pool has a large skylight overhead and the deck comes complete with barbecues for tenant usage. Because of the deck, the grills, and a young clientele, the Edge comes with a fun social scene. A smaller plunge pool with a waterfall is adjacent to the main pool. A two bedroom apartment will cost about $4,500.
Another good alternative for a rental building with a pool in Williamsburg is 111 Kent Avenue. The deck is on the fifth floor and there is also a barbecue grilling area for tenants with outstanding views of Manhattan’s East Side.
