Roosevelt Island Residents Are Invited To Join The Manhattan Park Pool And Swim Club - Opens Saturday May 28, Fees Are Same For Roosevelt Island Residents

It sure feels like summer today and with the upcoming Memorial Day weekend temperatures expected to be in the high 80's, it's good to know that the Manhattan Park Pool, Swim Club and Sun Deck opens for the season on Saturday May 28.

The Manhattan Park Pool Membership Fee Schedule is below. Fees are the same for Roosevelt Island residents. Non-Roosevelt Island residents pay more.

Contact Manhattan Park for more information and to join the Swim club at 212.759.8660 or

As reported last week, the Manhattan Park Swim Club initially listed higher fees for non-Manhattan Park Roosevelt Island residents to join than for Manhattan Park residents.

Frank Farance did some research and discovered a provision in the Manhattan Park ground lease with the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) which appears to require Manhattan Park Pool membership fees not to be based upon which Roosevelt Island building a resident lives in.  The revised Manhattan Park Pool fee schedule shown above was issued shortly thereafter.

Good job by Mr. Farance digging into this issue and good job by Manhattan Park revising it's Pool Fee policy.
