Lifeguard Luis Lecodet is not only this week’s “Hottie of the Double-D”— he’s also our first ever “Angel of the Double-D!”
For the past 20 years, the heavenly hunk from East New York has been saving lives at pools across Brooklyn — but the Douglass-Degraw Pool at Third Avenue and Nevins Street is where his heart is moored.
“This is more of a family-type atmosphere,” Lecodet said. “Everyone communicates with each other very well here.”
And that’s why he thinks pool-goers continue to flock to the pool, which was nearly closed this summer by City Hall decimal-diddlers.
“Everyone who comes here trusts us,” he explained. “They believe we’re doing a good job. They have faith in us.”
When he’s not on pool-side patrol, Lecodet, 36, enjoys handball, football and cycling.
And sorry gals — he’s not out there to flirt.
“I don’t do it for the women — I do this to save lives,” he stated. “I always get satisfaction when I’m doing something good for the public.”
Keep watch for our intrepid photographer, and you, too, may join the rarefied few who have been named “Hotties of the Double-D.” And remember: city pool close after one last Labor Day blowout, so get there now — and help the Parks Department see the error of its original budgeting ways.
