    Would be great if it were year round.

    Looks like they screwed up writing one of the portions; although there are many questions, only one “agree/neutral/disagree” can be given…anyone have any idea who to notify of this error?

  • KXrVrii1

    Yep, just noticed the same problem

  • Teresa

    I just skipped that one. I got the link off the BBP Twitter timeline, so maybe a reply to that?

    I let them know last night. I expect it will be fixed Monday morning.

    If we limit the amount of time people can spend at the pool (like we do now) pedestrian and vehiclar traffic will be fine.

    Also, having some early morning time slots reserved for local neighborhood residents would make up for some of the inconvenience.

  • Arch Stanton

    Wouldn’t more time slots equal more turnover hence more people traffic?

  • StudioBrooklyn

    I don’t see enforcement of “local neighborhood residents only” being very strong, consistent, or remotely pleasant for anyone. How would you suggest they implement such an idea?

  • Banet

    The pool will be so much bigger that I don’t think they envision a need for time slots. Like any city pool it would be first come, first served.

  • Banet

    And there’s NO chance of reserving anything for neighborhood residents. Can you think of a *single* public amenity in all of NYC that’s reserved for a certain geographic zone? The only one I can think of that comes close is Gramercy Park.

    I think early morning hours would serve the locals by default — not that many people would be willing to travel that far in the early morning.
