*The McCarren Park Pool is reopening on June 28th after being closed for 28 years. The timing couldn’t be better as this is the first year we can watch live TV poolside! Between the pool, our love for Brooklyn eats and Aereo, summer is off to a great start. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see how we’re celebrating.
