The poster says “McCarren Pool Bye Bye” because Saturday’s show (August 30, 2008) was billed as the last show ever at McCarren Pool. If the city has their way, that statement will be true for McCarren Pool, to quote Thurston Moore, “as we know it”. That may not be 100% true though because the current renovation plans include some type of “performance space” along with the water. More pictures below….
