Everyone Back in the Pool! Brooklyn’s BIGGEST Pool Set To Re-Open On June 28th.

Posted: March 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

The New York Post is reporting that the two year $50 million dollar restoration of the WHALE sized McCarren Park Pool is almost complete and the pool will open on June 28th. The huge pool which is located in the north side of Williamsburg was built in 1936 and can accommodate thousands of wet bodies. After years of neglect in the 70’s and early 80’s, the pool finally closed for good in 1984. It saw a bit of a re-birth in 2006 when local indie concert promoter Jelly began throwing it’s now infamous Jelly Pool Party concerts, which drew thousands inside of the empty pool to watch their favorite bands. Those concerts were moved to the Williamsburg Waterfront in 2009. When the pool project is completed, the City is hoping to receive a LEED certification for environmental friendliness. An ice rink is expected to cover the pool in the colder months.

Taken from the City’s website, this photo rendition is what the pool will look like. Although I’m a bit confused. There doesn’t seem to be a hipster in sight. Not even ONE. I’m guessing this is what the pool will look when the Jim Beam and Coke slushie machine is on at the Bushwick Country Club or during a kickball game.

So what are you waiting for?! Head over to Groupon.com, find that 51% off bikini wax deal, and schedule for late June.
