McCarren Play Center
McCarren Play Center, McCarren Park, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
The McCarren Play Center is one of a group of eleven immense outdoor swimming pools opened in the summer of 1936 in a series of grand ceremonies presided over by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia and Park Commissioner Robert Moses. All of the pools were constructed largely with funding provided by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), one of many New Deal agencies created in the 1930s to address the Great Depression. Designed to accommodate a total of 49,000 users simultaneously at locations scattered throughout 2 New York City’s five boroughs, the new pool complexes quickly gained recognition as being among the most remarkable public facilities constructed in the country. The pools were completed just two and a half years after the LaGuardia administration took office, and all but one survives relatively intact today.
While each of the 1936 swimming pool complexes is especially notable for its distinctive and unique design, the eleven facilities shared many of the same basic components. The complexes generally employed low-cost building materials, principally brick and cast concrete, and often utilized the streamlined and curvilinear forms of the popular 1930s Art Moderne style. Sited in existing older parks or built on other city owned land, the grounds surrounding the pool complexes were executed on a similarly grand scale, and included additional recreation areas, connecting pathway systems, and comfort stations. The team of designers, landscape architects and engineers assembled to execute the new pool complexes was comprised largely of staff members and consultants who had earlier worked for Moses at other governmental agencies, including architect Aymar Embury II, landscape architects Gilmore D. Clarke and Allyn R. Jennings, and civil engineers W. Earle Andrews and William H. Latham. Surviving documents also indicate that Moses, himself a long-time swimming enthusiast, gave detailed attention to the designs for the new pool complexes.
The size of the swimming pool at the McCarren Play Center (165’ x 330’), dedicated on July 31, 1936, is matched only by two of the other 1936 play center pools: Astoria and Betsy Head. Semi-circular diving and wading pools flank the swimming pool, an arrangement duplicated at both Sunset Play Center and Astoria Play Center. Contemporary sources indicated, however, that the capacity of the McCarren Play Center bath house exceeds by a few hundred that of the other ten play centers, including Astoria. The immense scale of the McCarren Play Center is powerfully expressed in the monumental forms of the main entryway, a massive cubic block topped by a set-back gallery. Giant arches emphasized by decorative brick patterning span the openings giving onto the street and swimming pool, while the smooth light-colored walls in the upper portion of the open courtyard reflect the light entering from above and add to the dramatic character of this space. Other notable features of the entryway include the Art Moderne ticket booth, the rounded jambs of the entrances into the locker rooms, and the decorative metal work in their transoms. Wide arches duplicated at a smaller scale than those of the main entryway link the separate comfort stations to the north and south ends of the bath house structure, further enhancing its monumentality. The landscaped setting, including linking pathways, additional play areas and plantings, was contemporary with the construction of the McCarren Play Center.
Although the McCarren Play Center was last open in the summer of 1983, the Parks Department, with the support of local elected officials and community groups, is committed to renovating, restoring and reopening the pool and bath house/recreation building. Meanwhile, since 2005, the pool and deck of the McCarren Play Center have been used for concerts, film screenings, performances, and other public events, which have greatly increased the visibility of the pool and have catalyzed interim improvements.
McCarren Park covers approximately 36 acres and is divided into four blocks by city streets.41 The park is irregular in shape, and is bordered roughly by North 12th Street to the southwest, Bayard Street to the southeast, Nassau Avenue to the west and north and Lorimer and Leonard Streets to the east. The McCarren Play Center encompasses nearly an entire city block and is located at the eastern portion of McCarren Park. It is bounded by Bayard Street to the south, Lorimer Street to the west, and Leonard Street to the east. The north boundary of the lot is irregular, and is bounded by Driggs and Manhattan Avenues. The Vincent V. Abate Playground is located in the northernmost portion of the block and is not part of the landmark site. The landmark site includes the former wading pool, which is currently the McCarren Water Park and is open to the public. Entry to the former wading pool is located at Driggs Avenue; one must pass through the Vincent
Storage and Sorting
Just a quick snapshot of my current working space. The visible units here range from small to large. I also have oversized bins out of the picture for unsorted and non-labled parts, and tv, dvd player, etc for use while I'm building (nothing like sitting down to build and watching box sets from things like Star Wars, Bugs Bunny, Family Guy, etc...all the world's problems go away for a while!)
The only unique thing about my storage method, compared to others I've seen, is that I label and sort with drawers in the same fashion as Bricklink catagorizes parts in their catalog. This way I'm "speaking the same language" when it comes to locating a part or deciding where to store it. I've found it extremely helpful since Bricklink's cataloging is thorough, extensive, and seems to function well. If I'm ever confused as to where to put a new piece, or having trouble finding something in my collection, I just go to Bricklink to see where they put it, and compare that to my labeling...it takes me right where I need to go.
