Cryptosporidiosis - Hard To Pronounce But Bad For Swimmers


According to the Centers for Disease Control, Cryptosporidiosis, a water-borne disease caused by a parasite invisible to the human eye, affected more than 10,000 people in the U.S. in 2008. The parasite rests within the small intestines of people infected by the disease, where the subsequent symptoms can include stomach cramps, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, fever, weight loss and diarrhea.

The disease, also known as Crypto, is transmitted by ingesting the parasite, frequently found in illnesses contracted from recreational waters. It’s natural to assume that the chlorine-treated pool you choose to swim in will protect you from Crypto, but the Centers for Disease Control advises the parasite is resistant to chlorine and can survive in a pool long enough to infect you or your loved ones. In addition to following these CDC-recommended steps to protect you from Crypto, the CDC recognizes secondary pool disinfectant systems such as ozone sanitation as one of the most reliable ways to neutralize Crypto and help ensure you enjoy a healthy swim.

That’s why we’d like you to know the 92Y May Center for Health, Fitness & Sport’s pool has used an ozone-based disinfectant process – in addition to a chlorine disinfection system – for the past 12 years. Learn more about our swimming facilities.

Andy Warhol For The 12-And-Under Set


How many paintings did Andy Warhol create “especially for the 12-and-under set?” 80.

From Time Out New York Kids:

Welcome to the 92nd Street Y Children’s Warhol Festival, the centerpiece of which comprises 80 Andy Warhol paintings made especially for the 12-and-under set. “We’ve never done anything like this with an artist of this stature,” says Robert Gilson, director of the 92nd Street Y School of the Arts. “Andy Warhol is very much in the public consciousness, but people—particularly children—never get to see this side of him.”

Warhol created the works at the request of his art dealer, who had two young children, and they were exhibited in Zurich in 1983. As was done at the original event, the works will hang just a few feet off the ground, making it easy for kids to examine the whimsical paintings of a robot, a mechanical bear, and various animals, cars and boats.

The 92Y Children’s Warhol Festival begins September 6 with the Warhol: Paintings for Children exhibit.

As well, workshops will take place at different dates during the month, and every Saturday and Sunday will host a Drop in Silkscreen Studio. All events are free. More info at
