To swim or not to swim…Why You Prefer Apartments for Rent With Indoor Pool

New York City’s weather is not as good as….San Diego, for example. Every year has 8,760 hours. And if you live in New York, in those 8,760 hours, you will only see the sunshine 2,677 hours on average. You’ll also need to open your umbrella about 121 days, because this is how much it rains in New York each year, according to US Climate Data.

33% of the days in New York, it’s raining. Now you know why it’s raining in most movies filmed in New York City. No dramatic effect at all, it rains for real!

On the other coast, San Diego enjoys 2,958 hours of sunshine without snow at all and only 43 rainy days. On March 17, 2017, New York City was hit with a snow storm that dropped 3 inches of snow just days before the official start of spring. Probably a lot of fun for the kids, but not so fun if you need to leave home and go to the office, right?

When you consider all of this, you know why you want an indoor pool over an outdoor pool if you are living in New York City, or if you have plans to move there.

In an article posted on, ten apartments are featured with swimming pools – some indoor, some outdoor. So why is an indoor swimming pool better than an outdoor swimming pool, besides the weather? Let’s check two main reasons. But for sure, you can find some other reasons on your own.

Accessibility –

An outdoor swimming pool in New York City is not heated during off seasons. This is bad news for you and every member of your family except if you have a penguin as a pet. An indoor swimming pool is just an elevator ride away from your apartment door and ready for a swim whenever you are…a climate-controlled, warm pool. Now you get the point, and you see it’s worth every extra dollar an indoor pool apartment may cost.

Purpose –

The primary function of a swimming pool is to swim, but so much more is done at the pool. For instance, enjoying a dip in the water on a hot day to cool off, teaching your children how to swim, socializing with families poolside, or swimming laps and getting your exercise on. All of this can be done when the weather is sunny outside, but one can do all of the above-mentioned in an indoor swimming pool anytime. Even drink a cold beer…or root beer if you don’t like alcohol. Anyway, your favorite drink with friends inside a warmed pool sounds like a nice weekend, right?
