Kings County (Brooklyn) - The City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Reconstruction of McCarren Pool and Bathhouse will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal by New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to renovate and reuse the existing unused McCarren Play Center, a State/National Register-eligible historic resource and a New York City Landmark. The proposed project would return this community facility to public use for year-round activities. During the summer months the play center's swimming pool and diving pool would be returned to their original uses and during the winter months the swimming pool would be converted to an ice skating rink. The proposed project would also include a recreation center, a rooftop café, and a snack shop that would be operational year-round. The proposed project would also advance a PlaNYC initiative of improving McCarren Park, a regional park. The project is located on the eastern portion of McCarren Park bounded by Driggs Avenue, Manhattan Avenue, Leonard Street, Bayard Street and Lorimer Street in the Greenpoint Community of Brooklyn, New York.
