Aside from the epic graffiti find, the buildings of McCarren pool supplied a huge amount of decay porn. Sadly though nearly everything in these photos is also gone – victim of the rapidly progressing gut rebuild of the pool.
Basement under the arch
Old refrigerator in the ruined concessions stand in the back.
Rusted pipes being hauled out.

Damaged electrical panel.
