Lord Mayor of Copenhagen and Swimming Pools Part I


This morning, we took the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen Ritt Bjerregaard and several Danish officials on a tour of High Line construction (you can see the recently re-installed tracks on either sides of the planking).

I love the Danes and their use of public space. The Copenhagen Harbour Bath is on my short list of swimming holes I want to visit.


The Bath was built in 2002-- the water in the Harbor is so clean they don't even need to filter or chlorinate the water. Some Copenhageners now pack towels and swimwear in their briefcases. 


This summer I hope to try our own local version: the Floating Pool that opened last summer. 

Stay tuned for more swimming pools-- including one that was once proposed for the High Line!
