Best free swimming pool (2008)

77TH STREET SUBWAY STATION

Does the scorching pavement make you nauseous? When the sky turns black and the heavens open up, skip over to the Upper East Side to refresh yourself in the depths of the 77TH STREET SUBWAY STATION, where the water level reaches your calves in less than five minutes. Watch as the children splash in the contamination and the commuters frantically try to drown each other; amusement and restoration courtesy of the MTA.
