Geoffrey Croft of NYC Park Advocates posted some great photos yesterday of the under-rehabilitation, WPA-era McCarren Park Pool, which is set to reopen on June 28th. Here’s what Croft has to say: “The new pool will accommodate 1,500 swimmers, a decrease of 700. The pool was closed in 1983 and became one of the Parks Department’s most public symbols of neglect. The city began renovating the pool in 2009. The pool was filled with water last week to run various tests.” Check out his blog post for other wonderful shots and more about the pool’s history.
