The Floating Pool Lady: A Quest to Bring a Public Pool to New York City’s Waterfront

« All Events

Historian and waterfront planner and activist Ann L. Buttenwieser is The Floating Pool Lady. As parks protector Adrian Benepe writes in the description of Buttenwieser’s new book, “Never mind Molly Brown of RMS Titanic fame—meet the unsinkable Ann L. Buttenwieser! In The Floating Pool Lady, Buttenwieser recounts, with the energy of a suspense novel, her visionary quest to bring to New York City the first floating swimming pool in more than seventy-five years.” From dusty archives in the historic Battery Maritime Building to high-stakes community board meetings, to tense negotiations in the Louisiana shipyard, Ann Buttenwieser describes the quixotic story that led to a floating pool tying up to a pier at Barretto Point Park in the Bronx.
