Bronx New Deal - Photo #230 - Crotona Park, Pool, and Play Center

Detail at rear of the Crotona Park swimming pool bathhouse, June 2014. Besides the Ibis bird, note the fanciful brick work. A page on the Parks Department website says, “the bathhouse features animal-themed sculptural elements (still visible today) created by Frederick George Richard Roth that illustrate the WPA-funded art of the era.”
