The Gansevoort Hotel’s uber-cool rooftop pool belly-flopped in a Post test for liquid hygiene, scoring last among six town swimming spots.
The five that outclassed it? The town’s community pools.
The resort share had been the only person to try good for coliform bacteria, that could suggest possible fecal contamination, along with the greatest quantities of “solids” — natural and mineral particles which shouldn’t be here.
There clearly was in addition a higher nitrate count and high salt amount — perhaps suggesting some guests aren’t simply leaking celebrity gossip.
The Gansevoort — a swank Meatpacking District hotspot known for gorgeous women relaxing in bikinis and boldfaced names inside registry — charges $700 for an area, or $300 just about every day to simply utilize the share, gym and spa.
“Pools do show micro-organisms every once in awhile, according to just how many folks are in pool and just how numerous ‘accidents’ obtained, ” stated biochemist Thomas Mullen, of Water Test America, which analyzed samples from the Gansevoort, and public swimming pools in each borough.
The Gansevoort, which didn’t get back a Post message seeking comment, “might need to up their particular chlorination, ” Mullen stated.
The municipal pools were pristine in contrast.
The Crotona pool into the Bronx, Red Hook in Brooklyn, Dry Dock in lower Manhattan, Astoria in Queens and Tottenville in Staten Island had liquid so clean, Mullen said, “they nearly meet drinking-water requirements.”
