    I won’t be there, but I hope someone raises the likely problems of heavy car and pedestrian traffic this will bring to the north Heights, especially with the opening of the “Panorama” office buildings literally next door, which will bring hundreds of new office workers into the area.

    Brooklyn Heights (as some of us knew it and loved it) is destroyed. My husband and I are looking to move out after several decades here. Why exactly can’t they put the pool down in BBP proper?

    The short survey mentioned is really only relevant for people have have used the pool. I will not be using it, but realize that a pool in the park is great for families. However, this is a terrible spot for what will be quite a small pool if there is space for access to the bridge, sitting, changing, etc.

    Destroyed? Isn’t that a bit hyperbolic? I haven’t been here my whole life but let’s be reasonable, it’s still an extremely idyllic part of the city to live in, especially for families, pets, and people who enjoy living amongst them. When people react to things like nearby swimming pools with pearl-clutching and promises to move away, it kind of makes me want to say “K, bye”.

    I can at least half believe that they looked for a better place, … and except for the obvious – WHY NOT MAKE permanent the current location?! – I suspect that each possible site is flawed in different ways. They actually seem to execute with some expertise – lots for a non-profit, i.m.o. – so that’s additional reason for optimism. They DO “crowd control” at the existing location, and it seems to work. The current use of that space is pretty absurd, so I suspect that the plans – if they go through – will be like BBP itself – generally eliciting Hurrahs!

    I wonder if the condo/hotel is supposed to spread onward into the space where the Pop-Up Pool is…
