Super Deluxe Lifeguard Station

For weeks one of the new pods on the boardwalk just west of Ocean Parkway was locked up tight. With the huge crowds on the boardwalk I thought it should have been opened by now. Today I spoke to a parks department worker who told me that the pod was not a bathroom at all but was actually the new Lifeguard Station.
Maybe I was on the boardwalk too early to find any lifeguards but they should be pretty happy with the accommodations.  The green powered futuristic pods are a $4 million upgrade as part of the Hurricane Sandy disaster relief allocation. That's a lot of sunscreen.
