On cold days with ice falling from the sky, one's mind turns to warmer times and things, like
swimming seeing concerts at McCarren pool in Greenpoint/Williamsburg. Programming for the summer is still being planned and it isn't known if any lightening rod-like concert promoters like Live Nation will get a contract. This is all a long way of saying that the Pool Aid group has re-launched its website, which would indicate that McCarren Pool fun can't is closer than you think. The group wants "diverse programming," "cheap or free" events, profits earmarked for a fund for the pool, etc. Last week, there were indications that McCarren money will go into a general Williamsburg-Greenpoint park fund and also that there's a thought of returning the pool to use as a pool, which the group also thinks is cool.
