New York City Public Swimming Pools Now Open

New York City public swimming pools opened yesterday and today's shaping up to be the perfect summer day for taking a dip.

New Yorkers can cool off at any of these 54 locations across the five boroughs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, with a break for pool cleaning from 3-4 p.m.

And don't forget to donate to this brilliant idea for New York's 55th public swimming hole--the floating pool in the East River.

Also, check out these fun photos from the opening day at Brooklyn's Kosciusko Pool in Bed-Stuy.
