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."

Quote:
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!".
