For the seventh year running, Roosevelt Island‘s waterfront rental building Manhattan Park has hired a local artist to transform its pool deck into a colorful art installation and “Pop-Up Pool Party.” This year’s mural comes from Brooklyn-based Melissa Dadourian, who created a technicolor geometric pattern over four-and-a-half days, using 36 gallons of paint. Though the pool is primarily for building residents, a number of seasonal memberships and day passes are available.
A playful art installation has returned to Manhattan Park, a waterfront rental on Roosevelt Island. Every summer since 2015, an artist is selected to transform the building’s pool deck with a dazzling 8,500-square-foot mural. This year, as part of a partnership with Corcoran New Developments, Pliskin Architecture, K&Co, and Manhattan Park, artist Alex Proba from Studio Proba designed the sixth annual pop-up mural, with a mix of colorful shapes and forms spread out across the outdoor space.

For the fifth year in a row, the outdoor pool at Manhattan Park—a waterfront rental community at 30 River Road on Roosevelt Island—has gotten a whimsical makeover just in time for summer. Citi Habitats New Developments, along with K&Co and Pliskin Architecture, worked with local artist Elizabeth Sutton to create the pop-up art installation, which will remain open throughout the season.
