Summer Fun in Brooklyn!


Summer is meant to be fun.  Last year we didn’t quite have that because of the coronavirus pandemic.  While the virus is definitely far from over, somehow we have found a way to deal with it and let people get back to leisure activities in a safe way.

Roosevelt Island has opened its outdoor pool.  Getting outdoors and cooling down is always a great idea in the summer.  But this ‘Pop-Up Pool Party’ in Manhattan Park offers so much more.  It is framed by the spectacular skyline, is in a 8.5 acre waterfront area. The project was created in conjunction with K&Co. and Pliskin Architecture designers and Corcoran New Development, alongside Melissa Dadourian a local artist who created the mural for this year, creating a geometric pattern, completely changing the feel of the pool deck, intensifying the color.

According to an announcement from the  Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy more than 500 events are planned this year, that started mid-April and will continue until September 25. 

For those who want to be a bit more active there is an 18-hole mini golf course in North Williamsburg riverfront.  But it comes with some education as well.  Players will get to learn about climate change, types of infrastructure, animal housing, energy and emissions.  This is because every hole has a different theme including: Down the drain, Whale Fall Feast, Big Oyster and more.

C’mon what are you waiting for?  Get out there and have fun!!! It’s summer and it won’t be here forever.
