New, 12 comments

Have you gone swimming yet? If not, here now we have 30 photos that will make you want to hightail it to the city's newest swimming hole, McCarren Pool. After a $50 million renovation lead by Rogers Marvel Architects, the 37,950-square-foot pool officially opened yesterday morning?check out our liveblog of the happenings if you want to relive the fun. The pool will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, with a break in swimming from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. for cleaning, and there will be early morning lap swims for adults from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. The pool is only 3 feet, 10 inches deep, and there is a section for young kids that's just two feet deep. McCarren also features a sand volleyball court, and a "Play Center," with a game room, weight room, fitness center, and indoor basketball court, all with brand new (like put-it-together-yesterday-new) equipment. See it all for yourself in the photos!
