GOWANUS - Budget cuts will lead to the Douglass-Degraw pool in Gowanus and three others being closed.

The Department of Parks and Recreation says closing this pool will help save the city about $1.4 million.

The department released a statement saying, ?Our decision was based on our judgment of several factors, including attendance figures, proximity to other pools, access to public transit and the location of the pools relative to residential communities.?
