Come on in, the water's fine!

CFJ swimming pool entrance

That was the slogan over the entrance to the CFJ Park swimming pool in Johnson City, New York, where I grew up.  A mammoth pool, it could accomodate 2000 people. 

To a little kid, that pool was as big as the ocean, and like the ocean, it fascinated me, and scared me a little bit, too.

Thus began my lifelong infatuation with the water world.  

My website, blog, and writing all reflect my love for being in, on, or under the water. So please, come on in, the water's fine! 

  • Wesley Bintz's unique design of an aboveground pool with changing rooms underneath is patented.
  • Broome County had two Blintz pools, at CFJ and First Ward parks.
  • Boise, Idaho still has two Bintz pools that are open to the public.
