Unknown to most, McCarren Pool contains a tunnel system. This tunnel system is a ring that starts under the main arch entrance and runs just under the edge of the pool in a large square. The rear side opens up to what was (and will be) the pool’s filtration room. Additionally there is a side tunnel that runs below the rim of what was once the diving pool (filled in and set to become a volleyball court).
Instead of hogging all the photo glory of having roamed through this place, I now turn this post over to the flavorful lens action of one Mr. ProZak, who accompanied me on this latest pool excursion.
Stay tuned for our next McCarren Xpose tomorrow, detailing the graffiti found in these tunnels.
