Tallest Infinity Pool in the Western Hemisphere Is Coming to New York City
[AD] Many would argue New York City is best viewed from the air—be it from the top of a skyscraper or the window seat of an airplane. Soon, however, there will be a brand-new vantage point to take in one of the world’s most recognizable skylines: from a rooftop infinity pool. Yet, this won’t be any ordinary rooftop pool, just as New York isn’t any ordinary city. The 27-foot-long saltwater infinity pool will be located atop a 68-story tower, making it the tallest rooftop pool and infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere.
Brooklyn Point tower will be a new luxury building that will house this record-breaking amenity. As the name of the structure suggests, the tower will be located in Brooklyn, the New York City borough that’s located just east of Manhattan and connected by the famous Brooklyn Bridge (among other bridges and modes of transportation). The new building will be situated on the corner of Willoughby Street and Flatbush Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn (for those familiar with NYC, that’s within blocks of three major subway stations, which, as every New Yorker will agree, is the most sought-after amenity of them all).
While the rooftop infinity pool will rightfully garner much of Brooklyn Point’s attention, other amenities within the 458-unit building will excite potential buyers. These include a fire pit, yoga studios, and wine storage. The structure is slated to be completed in early 2021, where prices range between $840,000 and $4 million for studio and three-bedroom apartment units. This all means that owners of the new building will soon be able to bask atop the tower, floating in a swimming pool, with unrestricted views that will include One World Trade Center, New York by Gehry, the East River, the Manhattan Bridge, the Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building, among many others.
