Pools on Park Avenue
Dumpster diving has gotten a whole lot cooler. As part of the city’s Summer Streets Initiative, three dumpster pools will be installed on Park Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets for the first three Saturdays in August, open 7am-1pm. City dwellers who brave the summer heat will be rewarded with views of the MetLife Building and Grand Central Terminal. Macro-Sea along with Vamos Architects designed the temporary, above-ground pools (which are cleaner and larger than the average dumpster) encircled with metal decks. Changing rooms as well as portable showers and toilets will also be provided. Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan describes the project as a “Park Avenue boardwalk.”
