Flushing Meadows Corona Park Aquatic Center

The largest recreation center ever built inside a New York City park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park Aquatic Center is home to a ten-lane, 50-meter-by-25-meter pool with an adjustable floor and one- and three-meter diving boards. Completed in 2008 for $66 million, the facility was built to host water polo during the 2012 Summer Olympics—a bid that New York lost to London. With twelve-foot-high windows stretching the length of the deck, clean and spacious locker rooms, ample deck space for both bleachers and unimpeded mobility, seating for some 500 spectators, and award-winning architecture, the Flushing Meadows facility is the finest aquatic complex New York City offers.

Coney Island

Open water competition will be held in the naturally protected bay off Coney Island in Brooklyn. The one-mile course will start and finish on the beach and will pass the world-famous landmarks of the Coney Island boardwalk, such as the Wonder Wheel, Cyclone, and Parachute Drop. Swimmers can generally expect low chop and a water temperature of around 65ºF (18ºC), though as with any open water event, race-day conditions may vary widely from the average.
