Water Sports, Part I: Brooklyn Bridge Park Beach & Barge Pool

We're running a drawing of the new "Brooklyn Bridge Park Beach" which will open sometime next week, because we think it's cool. But, for great photos, you should go over to Brownstoner and to BK11201. Here's some of the details from the Brooklyn Bridge Park website:
Cost: FREE!

Hours: 11 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., 7 days a week

What's there to do? Take a dip in the 25 meter, 7 lane Floating Pool Lady, a floating swimming pool moored in the East River. Run your toes through the sand on the 40,000 square foot Brooklyn Bridge Park Beach. Grab a burger, rent an umbrella and enjoy the spectacular views of New York Harbor. Get your game on for pick-up beach volleyball and sand soccer or contact MetroSoccer to sign up for a league!

Where: Between Piers 4 and 5 (Furman and Joralemon Streets), one block north of Atlantic Avenue. Mapquest: 334 Furman Street.
It doesn't appear that the exact opening date has been officially set, although July 4 has often been mentioned. So, now the question is: How crowded are the barge pool and the beach going to be? We see this having the possibility to be immensely popular and while the beach area may be big, the pool itself is not so big. Here's hoping that everybody that wants to use it can get in.
