McCarren Park Pool Redesign Approved Unanimously by Landmarks Preservation Commission


We’ve known this was coming for months, but now it’s official. No longer will you be able to frolic along with hundreds of other crazy kids in your skinny jeans. Now you’ll have to do it in your bathing suit. The Landmarks Preservation Commission has voted unanimously to turn the giant old pool into something roughly like the above Rogers Marvel rendering. There’ll be diving pools and ice skating and cafés and beach umbrellas. Where will the hipsters party now, you ask? We hear the Williamsburg Bridge is available.
