A ground-breaking ceremony was held yesterday at McCarren Park and Curbed was there for the play-by-play, which included the requisite tossing of dirt. Despite a few references to McLaren Park, Mayor Bloomberg mustered lots of energy and enthusiasm for the $50 million projectâ€”which includes a new pool (which will morph into a skating rink in the winter) and a year-round indoor gym. You can check out the new schematic in addition to a bunch of other photo-op shots on the link.
