Pool Aid Relaunches Website

You know that warmer days are just around the corner when some of the people agitating for returning McCarren Pool to use as a pool and against concerts by corporate promoters like Live Nation come to life again after months of silence. On Sunday, we noted that Pool Aid's "We Are the Pool" video will debut. Now, they have relaunched their website (navigation of which is a pain, but which has a lot of good content). Programming for the summer is still being planned and the Parks Department hasn't exactly been publicizing its plans, largely saying that it can only react to proposals that are made. As for Pool Aid, it wants "diverse programming," "cheap or free" events, profits earmarked for a fund for the pool, etc. There is sentiment in the community for having no concerts at the old pool at all because of noise and there is a big group that wants the pool renovated and returned to use as a pool. Then, of course, there is also the push for landmarking.
