Thanks to our Twitter homies @brooklynmamas for this tip. Today at noon, the NYC Parks and Recreation department is opening up its online lottery for FREE swimming lessons for adults and kids 18 months and up. Not sure exactly how it works, but we’re thinking that it’s like a Gilt sale that blinks on magically at noon. Here is the link to registration info for the three Brooklyn pools  (they’re in Williamsburg, Brownsville and, er, Crown Heights?) Online registration is open through Wednesday, Jan. 25.
