ST/PCV Hot Weather Precautions
Click on notice to get larger view.
With temperatures nearing 100 in the next three days (Friday could be the worst), stay-at-home residents without air-conditioning who may be affected by the weather should note that the air-conditioned Community Center off the 14 St Loop, by First Avenue [449 East 14th St], will be open from 10am to, probably, 10pm, if the above notice is accurate.
While this is a positive and thankful use of the Center, the center itself is small and almost at the corner end of the ST/PCV complex. I wonder if management has ever considered opening up the Oval "Essentials" to non-members during such times of an intense heat wave. Oval Lounge and Oval Film are particularly underused during the day and very frequently empty, except for a lone American Leisure staff member.
