Pools are open!

I was walking by the Carmine Street pool (featured in the movie Raging Bull) and I saw they were filling it up.  Today I read that the pools are open!  I don’t use the city pools actually, particularly the one here.  I’m still mad at not being allowed to use the facilities during “family hours” which is all the time during the summer.  New York City hates single people apparently. Hrmph. Oh no!  I’m like a future-cranky-old-person sitting on a bench, endlessly complaining.

Update: I had to come back here and post that I am now a happy member of this gym, have been for three years now, and I swim in the pools all the time. They made the pool hours more fair. It’s still more geared towards families in the summer, which is fine, as long they give the rest of us some time.
