Swimming in trash

This summer as part of the Summer Streets program, where they are closing down Park Ave for three weekends in August, the city has deployed "dumpster pools". At 40th and Park on Saturday morning there were three pools full of people splashing around with a view of Grand Central Station.

No, I didn't get in


  1. So there wasn't actually trash in them or are you referring to the people in them?

  2. No the water was very clear and pretty. I would of jumped in had there not been news crews and hundreds of spectators... on another note I was thinking how they aren't that different from the cattle tanks of our youth.

  3. I read about this in the paper. I wish we'd do something like this in Louisville. Last summer most of the public pools were closed due to budget cuts.


Comments are awesome!
