Everyone Out of the Pool!

From Dave Brigham:

When this municipal pool building in Boston's Brighton neighborhood was built in the 1950's or '60's, the architect didn't scrimp on cool design features. Unfortunately, nobody inspired by this fish can swim at the pool anymore.

Shuttered four years ago due to low attendance, high cost and safety concerns, the pool has been slowly decaying ever since, and probably for a while before it closed.

There are other public pools and spray parks not too far away, with more parking and better locations than the Brighton pool, which is squeezed between the Massachusetts Turnpike and a very busy Nonantum Road. I imagine the state will either tear this facility down in the near future or just start storing construction equipment there.
