one of the first drawings, inspiration for les crisdelair.
I moved to Williamsburg at the end of 1999 and spent a lot of time exploring Mc Carren Pool, it was the most fascinating spot in the neighborhood for me back then, and I kept a special connection with it. It opened in 1936 and is reopening in less than a month. The rebirth of a pool… beautiful but it will never be the same ; i shall hope when i close my eyes, surrounded by hundreds of other swimmers, that its haunted spirit is still there. Those polaroids were taken in early 2000
