McCarren Pool to be Restored as a Pool?


We were amused to be thumbing through the Open Space section of the PlaNYC 2030 document and to find the following verbiage on Page Six:
Opened in 1936, then closed in 1984 due to the deterioration of its systems, McCarren Pool will finally be rebuilt as both an outdoor Olympic-size pool and a year-round recreation center serving the people of north Brooklyn.
No dates or details are given. Today's New York Times has a full story on all the unused spaces that would be rehabbed and returned to use if the money and political will are found. (The Times story has the work starting this summer and being finished in "a couple of years.")

Except McCarren pool is something like 3 or 4 olympic size pools... so they are talking about a significantly smaller pool.
