Manhattan To Open First Public Beach In Undeniably Awful Idea

I’m a big fan of NYC. If I lived somewhere else, I’d be okay, but I think if I had to rank locations to live, I’d put NYC #1. That doesn’t mean the city is perfect. It’s often too crowded. The streets smell like shit. The subway often breaks. The MTA is a joke.

The city and state government continue to strive to make NYC a better place to live in, but continue to misallocate funds in places such as a public beach in Manhattan:

I, truly, cannot stress enough how bad of an idea this is. This beach is a year or so from opening and it already smells like shit.

Why head to the Rockaways or Coney Island for a beach trip when you can zip over to Manhattan’s West Side?

SOURCE-Following the January reveal that James Corner Field Operations, the firm that designed the popular High Line and Williamsburg’s Domino Park, would plan out Manhattan’s first public beach in the Meatpacking District — this week saw the release of the site’s preliminary renderings, 6sqft reports.

If you’re expecting to swim at this beach, think again:

Swimming? Don’t count on it. As The Post reported in January, the Citizens Water Quality Testing Program routinely finds “unacceptable” levels of fecal bacteria in the water off the West Side.

Hit the link above for the renderings of the new beach. You’ll notice there are no homeless people pictured, which immediately makes this rendering to be fake news.
