Brooklyn Beach Shack Opens Next to Brooklyn Bridge Park Pool

Yesterday was the official opening of the Brooklyn Beach Shack, a concession locted next to the “beach” adjoining the pop-up pool on the Pier 2 uplands of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The shack will serve burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, and soft drinks during pool hours. From the time the pool closes at 6:00 p.m. until the Shack closes at 11:00, beer and wine will be available. In the photo, Shack manager Tracee Loran, State Senator Daniel Squadron, and concessionaire Glenn Markman toast the Shack’s opening.

Your correspondent sampled the Shack Burger, while Sen. Squadron dug into the 1834 Burger (commemorating the year Brooklyn was incorporated as a city). We both thought our respective burgers (to steal a word from our man Karl) “DEE-licious.”

    I love this pool and hope the Shack draws people in after pool hours. Sounds nice to sit at a picnic table in the sand and have something to eat and drink.

    Why not have adult-only swim from 6PM-11PM?

  • Claude Scales

    Swimwear optional?

    Hoppy – good idea! Claude – not so good!

    @ Hoppy — great idea but too long a more realistic 8pm – 11pm would work for Adult Swim

    @ Shes Crafty I feel this pool is crummy but its better than nothing.

    @ Claude – Skinny dipping could be a lot of fun!
