FINALLY! McCarren Park Pool Looks Ready For Summer

If last week's inclement weather (where have you gone, love?) put springtime brights on our radar, the latest photos to surface of McCarren Park Pool renovations just launched a 1000 gym memberships bikinis! The pool looks just about ready to rumble after it was totally closed off for construction in 2008, ending forever its non-swimming stints as abandoned lot/graffiti canvas/crack den, and, most recently, totally awesome free concert hall aka McCarren Park "Pool Parties". After four summers and $55 million in the pot, the space is finally getting back to origins. Plus the serious refit is also going retro to recall the spot's prewar glory days as a summertime hub, like back when Laguardia meant the mayor and WPA wasn't West Palo Alto. Think we'll break out the old-school high-waisters for this one! (Gothamist)
