Astoria Pool information
This Works Progress Administration Olympic-size outdoor pool, built in 1936, is the biggest in the city, an elegant wonder with views of Manhattan and the Triborough Bridge. It's best for lounging, rather than serious laps, as it is only 3ft deep, and crowds can break 1000 on sunny summer days.
Note the city policy at pools: T-shirts or coverups must be white (no colors), and you must bring a combination lock.
