Brooklyn Bridge Park pool offers fun, food, spectacular views

The Brooklyn Bridge Park pool is now open, and it's already packed with swimmers.

The free pool, which also comes with a spectacular view of Manhattan's skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, is three and a half-feet at its deepest and holds only 60 swimmers.

There's also a beach with sand, 25 beach chairs, umbrellas, a concession stand and a deck area equipped with picnic tables.

Even though the pool is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., people are encouraged to stay and enjoy the beach and concession stand, which stays open even later. To hear extended interviews from swimmers and visitors at the Brooklyn Bridge Park pool, click on iO Extra on Channel 612.
