Splash cash: New York renters pay top dollar for access to pricey rooftop pools

July 2019

The most-coveted amenities in luxury hotels are now becoming fixtures in high-end Manhattan real estate. The luxury Midtown rentals at 555TEN, for example, are topped by a spacious rooftop pool on the building’s 56th story, one of numerous amenities the Extell-developed building offers. The tower’s outdoor pool is also surrounded by a cabana-dotted deck, perfect for lounging when the weather heats up, as it offers sweeping views of the Hudson River and Midtown.
