Summer’s officially here. The season arrived exactly at 1:16 pm Tuesday. So you can expect those who complained about the cold and snow -- to start complaining about the heat and humidity. But, there are plenty of ways to beat the heat in the baking Big Apple, including at one of the city’s many outdoor pools. On this week's Cityscape, we’ll look back at the history of the city’s public swimming pools -- a history that involves charges of racism. We'll also visit Embee Sunshade Company in Brooklyn. They've been making beach and patio umbrellas since 1933.
