Three former dumpsters were magically transformed into public swimming pools on Park Avenue this weekend, and hundreds of New Yorkers lined up in midtown for a dip.

That looks pretty cool but it sounds gross to call them "dumpster pools".... it gives an image of a filthy dumpster being filled with water.

How interesting to convert former dumpsters into swimming holes and place them in swanky Park Ave. neighborhoods.

I guess converting dumpsters into swimming pools is cheaper than maintaining the real pools all around the city that have been closed.
