Hotel Gansevoort Park Avenue Pool

With the 4th of July weekend behind us, summer is in full force and (if this weekend's weather was any indication) the temperature is only going to rise. While sitting indoors with the air conditioner cranked up to capacity may be an easy solution, it's impossible--and almost silly--to spend your entire summer inside. Check out these rooftop pools for a quick, cool getaway from the city's upcoming heat waves.
