Could this be real? First and foremost you should probably listen to THIS while reading this post…you know, for “atmosphere.”
Both Curbed and the Village Voice have reported that the ever mysterious “+Pool” project is an actual possibility. +Pool is probably the coolest (literally) and most summer useful projects to date: the pool (in the shape of a plus sign) will float on the east river and filter the river’s water– so it will be LIKE swimming in the East River but without fear of infection. The project has teamed up with an engineering company and their kickstarter page is up and running, check it out and become a “backer” of this amazing project (they need $25,000 by July 15th to make this a possibility).
