It's been really warm here the past few days, highs in the nineties everyday. Seemed like as good of a time as any to go and see for myself how people were handling it. the first stop was the brand new floating pool (and sandy beach) that had been created under the brooklyn heights promenade.

the food situation at the barge, seems to be limited to hot dogs and ice cream at this point, but according to ny magazine, that may be changing very soon. they wouldn't let me onto the barge without a bracelet, so i set off towards the next destination. stop 2 was the double d pool, on third avenue near the gowanus canal.

lastly, the kids on my street have been running the hydrant for the past couple of days.

the only other news is that sidecar had taken down the paper covering the windows and appeared to be open as i drove past today...

(560 Fifth Ave., between 15th and 16th streets, Brooklyn, 718-369-0077)

sources report that a liquor license is "coming soon," for now it's B.Y.O.
