Brooklyn Bridge Park applies for permit to open up its own floating pool a la Floating Pool Lady

BY Erin Durkin and Jake Pearson

Brooklyn Bridge Park could finally get its own floating pool.

Park officials want to build a new floating pool, like the wildly popular barge-borne one that docked in the Brooklyn Heights harbor four summers ago, and last week took the first step by applying for a permit with the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

"It was popular. It drew visitors from all over Brooklyn, the city, and 12 foreign countries," said state Sen. Daniel Squadron (D-Brooklyn Heights).

"Having recreation that makes this park the citywide star that it can be is very important, and having a floating pool in the harbor would help the park reach its potential."

A Message From Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos

To All New Yorkers,

 

Welcome to the official web site of the New York State Senate. The new year of 2011 brings important changes and challenges to our State government, and to the State of New York as a whole. 

The members of  the State Senate will be working closely with our new Governor Andrew Cuomo and the members of the New York State Assembly to meet the significant challenges that lie ahead.

The people’s priorities must be our priorities.  That means balancing the state budget, closing the deficit, easing the burden on taxpayers, and doing everything we can to strengthen our economy and create private sector jobs.

Martin Luther King, Jr. 2011 Greetings

­­On January 17, 2011, we celebrate the life and legacy of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.  I extend warm greetings to my African-American brothers and sisters and all people of good will who follow Dr. King's example.

It has been over forty years since Dr. King was taken from us, so quickly and so violently. Yet, the manner in which he left us is not what I wish to dwell on today. Rather, I believe it is important to reflect on the lessons he left us, the lessons of his life and the lessons of his legacy.
