Summer pool memberships?

5/25/2010 Update:

Each year, when the weather starts heating up – Hoboken411 receives quite a few emails from new readers and residents asking about the swimming pool situation around town.

What do you suggest? The pools in Secaucus or North Bergen? Any other alternatives?

Non-resident pool access

Hoboken411 reader Meagan is looking for a place to cool off this summer and asked:

“Do you know if there are any non-public pools in Hoboken that offer summer pool membership? Maybe like the Shipyard or Maxwell Place?

I personally don’t know the answer to this – but I’d venture to guess that the answer is NO. Naturally, the purpose of a pool at a private condo building is supposed to be one of the key selling points – and if it were open to the public, it would certainly be a huge turn-off.

My advice? When making new friends in Hoboken, be sure to ask where they live – and if they have a pool. Quickly try and buddy up with them NOW before the summer starts!

There is $0 fee to use the Hudson. I see people in there all the time, usually swimming from a boat. The Hudson is very clean actually.

I said it last year, and I’ll say it again: 1000 Jefferson is not a public pool. It’s small, not maintained at all during the winter, and it’s always overcrowded. If you’re a resident you should know that the lease only allows you to bring one guest (if they still do at all), technically it’s for residents only. Also, the courtyard closes at 10pm – for all of you party animals having beer pong parties till 2am. At least don’t yell – the poor design just echoes every noise into the apartments.

Can you tell I just love living here? I do, just don’t love everyone else… 😉

That’s a pool at 1000 Jefferson? Looks more like a hot tub. Imagine doing laps in that thing?[quote comment=”192759″]I said it last year, and I’ll say it again: 1000 Jefferson is not a public pool.

Laps? More like wading! LOL. You aren’t missing anything. I have more space in my bathtub, and I don’t have to share.[quote comment=”192770″]That’s a pool at 1000 Jefferson? Looks more like a hot tub. Imagine doing laps in that thing?

Any wise condo association with pool water of this pea-green hue better have a hold harmless agreement ready if they are selling memberships!
