Neighborhood #2.1 (Swimming Pool)

In the final photo in the preceding entry — the view from the Aurora — you can see a red structure in the distance. This is the old McCarren public swimming pool, now grown over with weeds and surrounded by do not enter signs and razor wire.

The excellent Forgotten NY site has the history of the pool, including a photograph of opening day in 1936.
