zurbaran1 Sometimes you find beauty in the strangest places and sometimes they are right in your own back yard, where the tendency is to take things for granted. What have we here? Built by Robert Moses and opened in 1936, Astoria Pool is the oldest and largest swimming pool in New York City. The swimming pool is still in operation but the diving pool, pictured here, has long been drained and left to decay. The pool was the site of the US Olympic diving trials in 1936 and 1964. Recently there has been talk of turning the diving pool into a 500 seat amphitheater for outdoor performances. Looking over the pool in the background is the #triborobridge #rfkbridge #astoriapool #astoriapark #eastriver #astoryofastoria #whyleaveastoria 1mon

Need I say anything? No filter needed here. Took this pic after watching people having fun in #AstoriaPool and before my walk/run time. Isn't this breathtaking? Say Yes!
