Brooklyn Pool Party!
The masses assembled despite 100-degree weather to enjoy free sets by Of Montreal, Enon, and more at a once-abandoned public pool.
There is nothing sweeter than watching a shaggy haired hipster wearing tight tapered black jeans ferociously participate in a game of dodge ball or take a flying leap down a giant slip n’ slide. These delightful sights, along with many others, could be observed yesterday at the Jelly NYC Pool Party in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park where hundreds came out despite oppressive heat and sun to enjoy free live music by Of Montreal, Enon, Irving, and Asobi Seksu. Although most agreed that the concept was fun and great for the community, there was an overwhelming desire for the pool to once again be filled with cold water — it’s been empty for over two decades. ILLYRIA TURK
