People in Brooklyn Heights now have a new place to cool off this summer.

The city is opening a pop-up pool at the waterfront of Brooklyn Bridge Park Friday.

The temporary 30-by-50-foot pool, which offers a stunning view of the lower Manhattan skyline, will be open every day through Labor Day.

A maximum of 60 people can fit inside at a time, but there will be four swimming sessions per day to allow everyone to get a turn.

The $700,000 pool, which is purposely shallow at 3.5 feet to accommodate families with children, is located at Pier 2.
