6. The Teacher’s College Pool is the Oldest in NYC

Teacher's College

Built in 1904, this is considered the oldest pool still in use in New York City, and one of the oldest in the country. The pool was built as a part of the largest gymnasium for women in the country, the Frederick Ferris Thompson Memorial Building. Now the pool is a part of the Teachers College of Columbia University and has changed little since its original construction– as a turn-of-the-century European take on Roman baths.
