Brooklyn is officially saying buh-bye to the Floating Pool dream. The Parks Department confirms that last year's announced plan is still the plan: the Floating Pool will be spending the summer at Barretto Point Park in the South Bronx. A Parks Department spokesperson tells the Brooklyn Paper "our intention was always to spread it around the city." The pool drew tens of thousands of people to the future site of Brooklyn Bridge Park last summer. There's no timetable for when the pool will float from it's winter home in Jersey to SoBro. It'll presumably open with the rest of the city pools on June 27.
