My name is Mica(ela) Root. A New Yorker by birth, I’ve also been a Philadelphian since 2002. I’m pretty sure there isn’t anyone in the world I wouldn’t be interested in talking to at least once. If it involves exploring or spending time near water, all the better.
You can read more about me, and the origins of this project, here and here. Or, for more frequently updated pools coverage, follow me on Instagram.
I’d love to hear about your experiences with Philly’s public pools and swimming in the city.
