Curtis Martin may be into One Brooklyn Bridge Park for $7.25 million, but the Barge Pool swam away from the Brooklyn Heights waterfront yesterday to spend the winter in--say it ain't so--Bayonne, New Jersey. (It drew 72,000 people this summer, not counting the tens of thousand of people that showed up and left because the lines were end-of-the-world long.) It will end up at Barretto Point Park in Hunts Point floating around on a body of water known as Barretto Bay next year. At least, that looks like the plan everybody is backing at this point. So, no complaints next summer in Brooklyn Heights about people running through the streets in their bathing suits?
