The co-op's pool was quite literally slip, slidin' away.
The 142-unit co-op, at 2575 Palisade Avenue in the Riverdale section of The Bronx, is a paradise of sorts — at least according to Harry Amer, a resident since 1980 and board president since 1982. "Everybody has a beautiful view of the Hudson River and the Palisades," says Amer. "There are no buildings to the west of us, [just] a greenbelt, the trees, and Metro North train rails. Other than that, you feel like you're more in the country than in New York City."
Yet the seven-member board found it had trouble in paradise — trouble with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'P' and that stands for pool.
