Tricks to Keep Your Apartment CoolJuly 18, 2018
School’s out for the summer, so it’s time for pool parties, summer camp and family bonding. The kids are home and ready to play, and although we may not have time off in our own jobs, this time is crucial for lifelong friendships, educational prep and memories that are not to be forgotten. That’s why River Place prides itself on providing unparalleled amenities to support growing families like yours.
Within the perimeter of River Place alone, your family has access to our very own children’s playroom. Here, you, your children and your children’s friends can find an assortment of educational books, games, toys and even enjoy colorful murals painted by artist Heather Heckel. Get inspired by her work as your toddler learns to engage with their surroundings. Pop in for a quick visit or even grab a bedtime story for later.
When you’re done there, walk straight out to our glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool to combat the NYC heat. You can’t miss it! It’s perfect for swimming lessons, swim team practice or a lazy Sunday lounge and swim. Speaking of lounging, River Place offers the luxurious River Club Lounge, a secluded sun deck and even an observation deck where the world becomes yours.
If it’s not too hot, get outside and play on our custom Tom Otterness playground which is shared with Silver Towers - perfect for making friends around the community. The surrounding park provides a great opportunity to picnic and celebrate life with your family in NYC without venturing too far away from home. There is even a dog park, so Spot can play too.
When you are in the mood for an adventure, head just around the corner to Hudson River Park. Explore everything from day camp and petting zoos to yoga and water sports. Then, take a walk along the water to Pier 86 where you’ll find The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Learn about the history of NYC’s most historic vessels while enjoying a cool summer breeze and taking photos to remember it by.
Explore all of the amenities by day or stretch them out through the summer as the festivities that the city has to offer ignites your family’s summer ambition. After all, school’s out till fall and your kids might not want to go back at all - especially when it’s summer in the city. Have a wonderful summer!
