Lyons Pool, Staten Island, NY
Lyons Pool is a historical landmark pool in Staten Island, New York where I was born. I went to Lyons Pool with my mother when I was 6. In 2009, I went to my old stomping grounds. The lifeguards there are my closest friends. They're also my swimming rivals because some of the lifeguards are actual swimmers. 2014 was also the year that Lyons Pool made history that a friend of mine and 2 time Olympic Gold medalist swimmer, Garrett Weber-Gale came to Lyons Pool and we had our special battle. It was a memorable day for me, Garrett and my friends that we won't ever forget.
