NAMING THE POOL
We think the naming of the Lansingburgh swimming pool the Knickerbacker pool was inevitable. It is placed upon land bought by John Knickerbacker and turned into a great playground. The playground authorities still retain reversionary rights. The pool could not exist were it not for the munificence of the late creator of the playgrounds and it is right that his name should be carried in its title.
Mayor Fitzgerald has placed a tablet on the bath house giving the name and the necessary facts. Those who go to the pool for a swim will always have before them a remembrance of the original giver—and those others who arranged that a portion of the grounds be dedicated to so practical a use.
