In today's weird but resourceful news, Macro-Sea has been converting old dumpsters in Brooklyn into mini swimming pools. It may sound grossly unhygienic at first but no worries as it is both cleaned and lined with a barrier. These do it yourself pools are then placed in backyards and other empty spaces for all to enjoy free of charge. This is perfect for the summertime and today's shitty economy.
There's been no publicized locations yet, but a commenter on Curbed assures that it is 'behind Bond St, and pretty sure President and Carroll are the exact cross streets'.
