Everybody in the pool!
Today was the last day of NYC public school — which means Pre-K and First Grade are officially history at our house. (Sniff, sniff. Those moving-up ceremonies are some serious kind of emotional business, aren’t they?)
The next few days will be a wild flail of packing for a month for four people, ad hoc meal prep, last-minute errand-running, and, oh yeah — dealing with the kids, who are no longer conveniently deposited at P.S. 295 from the hours of 8:30 am – 3:15 pm. Which means….
There’s a good chance you can spot us at the Red Hook or Douglass and DeGraw pools before we head out of town — NYC public pools open for the season tomorrow, Wednesday, June 29.
Here’s more on the best swimming pools in New York City, public and otherwise — plus the lowdown on the rules (don’t forget your lock for the locker room, etc.) FYI, outdoor pool hours are 11 am – 7pm, with a break for cleaning from 3 to 4 pm.
No more school — keep it real and stay cool, peeps! Happy summer!
