Make a splash: City pools reopen tomorrow

Dozens of outdoor city pools reopen for the season tomorrow (June 26) ... locally, this means the Hamilton Fish Pool on Pitt and East Houston (above), the Dry Dock Pool on 10th Street and Avenue D and the Tompkins Square Park mini pool...   
Outdoor hours are from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. daily, with a break for pool cleaning between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Find more info about city pools at this link.

Parks officials say they're still determining whether the Lap Swim program — as seen at Hamilton Fish —is feasible this summer. And still not feasible: breath-holding contests ...
During the pandemic last summer, only 15 city pools opened, and not until Aug. 5
