Everybody out of the pool!
Co-op owners at Chelsea’s posh London Terrace complex want to exclude renters from its indoor, Olympic-sized swimming pool unless their management company coughs up $750,000 a year for splashing rights, sources told The Post.
But the well-heeled renters — who pay between $4,000 and $18,000 a month for their apartments — say they shouldn’t be charged extra to swim alongside the homeowners, as all residents have done since 1930.

The London Terrace Towers condominium owners had long sought to renegotiate use of the Olympic-size swimming pool by the London Terrace Garden renters. Kreisel Corporation manages the four Tower buildings and had just completed an expensive renovation of the largest swimming pool in the city. Built in 1931, the pool features six lanes, locker rooms, a balcony, and art deco fixtures. Clarendon Management oversees the rental properties in London Terrace Gardens, the ten interior buildings on 23rd and 24th street. Clarendon had paid a meager $5,500 a year to the Towers for use of the pool for thirty years. Swimmers by the hundreds including myself came from the Gardens.

We were barred entry from the pool, a place of sanctuary from the rigors of Manhattan life.
