You are curious as to what Williamsburg looked like in the early and gritty 80’s? In his 1983 exploitation classic ‘Vigilante‘, director William Lustig shot a major chase scene at McCarren Park Pool. Other neighbor locations that can be seen in the movie are McGuniness Boulevard (definitely) and the Kent Street area (I think). Vigilante has recently been released on Blu-Ray by Blue Underground. I highly recommend renting or purchasing this stellar disc. Below is a video excerpt of the chase scene at the pool.
