Astoria Pool

The Astoria Pool (Astoria Park) is the oldest and largest public pool in NYC, and while it was used for olympic trials in the last century, the NYC Parks department is feeling the constraints of a lower budget, and hence the pool opens relatively late in summer, and it’s general state of repair isn’t the best. The main pool is pretty shallow, 40-100cm, and jumping pool is completely out of commission. Kinda sad, but unfortunately a fact of life in the city.
