Features Commodore”s Work on the McCarren Pool Project.
“Larger than a football field, McCarren Pool is being brought back to life in the hands of Commodore Construction Corp. after laying empty in Brooklyn since 1983. As the largest of more than 10 swimming pools opened in New York at the height of the Great Depression, its debut was momentous.
