Letter: Summer sky is the best roof for Central Park pool

Enclosing outdoor pool would put a chill on the magic of the warm-weather swimming season, reader says.
Outdoor pool central park
The pool at Central Park.


I could not agree more with Karin Alzner (Letter: Don't cover up Central Park pool).

The Central Park pool is a gem. Please don’t put any kind of roof over it.

My kids walk there and it is a special part of their summer, right up there with camping and the music from the ice cream truck as it approaches.

(And no, l don’t tell them the music means he is out of ice cream any more, they figured out l was lying about that years ago!)
