Assuming the July 4 opening date holds, we're a mere 16 days away from the opening of the Barge Pool. Anchored on the waterfront in Brooklyn Heights (at least initially—future anchorages to follow), it's guaranteed to be the most overhyped, overhipstered part of your summer! Naturally, we can't wait. To ratchet the hype just a bit further up, NewYorkology reports that the New York Water Taxi will dock at the Barge Pool. Stupendous!
