Yes, this is an elephant in McCarren Pool. Her name is Beulah. You can click here to see her friend, Timmy. They're at the pool as part of an art project called Games are Forbidden in the Labyrinth, which "brings to life the ancient parable of the 'Blind Men and the Elephant.'" Sorry, but it's a (relatively) closed set. The film will be screened at a later date. Beulah and Timmy are hanging in the Burg courtesy of the same program that brings us the Brooklyn Loch Ness Monster and this thing in Prospect Park.
