The abandoned Country Estates Swim Club pool in East Hills, New York being demolished


The long-abandoned swimming pool located behind the historic Mackay Estate Gate Lodge in East Hills was demolished on March 2, 2022. The area is being cleared for a six-home housing development. The Mackay Estate Gate Lodge is being restored by the Village of East Hills with the assistance of the Roslyn Landmark Society.

For 13 years, the pool became known throughout the world as an unauthorized skateboard site. The pool was featured on the cover of the December 2013 issue of Transworld.
