The Floating Pool Lady

A July 2007 trip to Brooklyn by FastRabbit

Quote: Whatever will they think of next in this town of New York. This is about a pool that floats on a barge in the East River. Oh yes, it is true. I had to get a look and take a dip for myself.

Attraction | "Swim on a barge in the East River."

The Floating Pool Lady is moored in the East River. It is owned by the City Parks and Recreation. It is free for everyone. This is truly a unique experience. It makes you realize how some crazy dreams can come true. Have you ever swam on a barge before? Probably not. You should because it is amazing. The pool also has a beach, a 40,000 square foot beach that one can sun bathe on, play volleyball, etc. This is one of those things that makes you say, "only in New York!".
