Wet hot NYC summer: City pools open today

[Hamilton Fish Pool via]

That means Hamilton Fish Pool on Pitt and East Houston ... the Dry Dock Pool on Avenue D and East 10th Street ... and the Tompkins Square Pool (mini pool for kids!) are opening ...

The early and late lap swims (8-9 a.m. and 7-8 p.m.) at Hamilton Fish Pool will begin in a few weeks, the Lo-Down noted yesterday.

And no word just yet when you can swim in a floating pool in the East River.

HATE that Tompkins pool, it always overflows on the weekends and floods the basketball court, killing the games. Hoop Problems

Not sure if 4:47 is serious or tongue in cheek. If serious, what a deep loser to begrudge kids playing in a pool in summertime because you get your feet wet playing basketball; may I suggest a JOB perhaps.
If tongue in cheek, well ain't I the dummy.

Dry Dock Pool is literally two blocks away, the giant petri dish know as TSP pool should have been torn down years ago.
I'm amazed it hasn't been classified a bio hazard site.

7:51, I played ball on that court practically every summer day for over a decade, and never saw that happen ever. The fattest kid doing a cannonball from the top of the backboard into the pool would not produce enough of a splash to interrupt a game, although there might be a delay while players waited for the backboard to stop swaying back and forth.
