....the pool will also be good for the environment, cleansing up to half a million gallons of river water every single day.

Probably decrease landfill use too! No more funky mattresses caused by people swimming in the East River!

Your turn!

A great place for kids and homeless people to jump in and pee.

Just how will a swimming pool clean a half a million gallons of water a day?Is the contamination cleared up naturally by the Sun or are water filtration systems running 24 hours a day.

The story just didn’t make sense.

Aggressive geese stoned on leftover crack rocks they’ve eaten.
Trenchcoat wearing creepers spying on people.
And the ever famous “public indecency” types looking to shock and annoy!.
Only one way off the pool, and that’s past the hairy fat dude publicly groping himself midway down the walkway!
Such a deal, NYC!

Swimming pool or “cess pool”. There’s a lot of crap floating in the East River.

It will have “male only” and “female only” hours, and women must be covered head to toe in accordance to shariah law.
And there will always be a deuce floating in there somewhere.
Or a Coney Island Whitefish!

"It will have “male only” and “female only” hours"

And of course, there will be separate times for gays, lesbians, and transgenders.

I’d rather swim in the waste pool containing the radioactive water from the Fukishima Power Plant than in the East River.

Infidel Swine-Dog.

The proposed pool is in the shape of a .... splutter ... splutter ...CROSS!

Do not even attempt to grope-search our burhka-clad lady swimmers for dynamite!
