10. Rainbow Colored Pool on Roosevelt Island
This is the second year for Roosevelt Island‘s Manhattan Park Pool summer installation pool mural. Sponsored by K&Co and Pliskin Architecture, this year’s 8,000-square-foot mural by artist Andrew Faris is titled Block Party, and was unveiled on Memorial Day. It is accompanied by the pool’s other design elements that include lounge chairs, hammocks, and sun-umbrellas. This colorful pool, overlooking Manhattan, comes with a fee. On weekdays, residents of Roosevelt Island must pay $15, and non-residents pay $35. On weekends, residents pay $25 while non-residents pay $50. Children under the age of one are free.
