You have through Sunday to swim in city pools (though not the Tompkins Square Park mini pool)

The Tompkins Square Park mini pool is now closed until next summer. The pool season ended here on Labor Day... and workers have already drained (most of) the water, as these photos via EVG Mini-Pool Correspondent Steven show...

However, because it's still summer (woooooo!), the city's 50-plus outdoor public pools remain open. So you have until Sunday evening (Sept. 8!) to enjoy Hamilton Fish Pool on Pitt and East Houston and the Dry Dock Pool on Avenue D and 10th Street.

Outdoor pools are open daily from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m., with a break for pool cleaning between 3-4 p.m.

Same rules apply as they did on opening day in June: No urinating or defecating in the pools.

"No urinating or defacating" in the pools is why I never open my eyes underwater.
