According to Con Edison, conservation is the operative word when dealing with the scorching temperatures and withering humidity that’s continued to make perspiring feel like it should be considered a demonstration sport at the upcoming London Olympics. While no one is suggesting you quietly simmer in your household with the air conditioner off, the best option would be to take advantage of the Garden City Pool. Officially open for the season on June 9, the pool is newly renovated and hosts a number of amenities. Not only are there new filtration systems and an entirely revamped children’s pool with a new interactive water playground, but shade structures were added to the adult pool, the playground (and soon next to the kiddie pool) and the 20-year-old water slide in the main pool area was remastered. It all adds up to probably the best way to beat the heat and keep your electric bill down.
