+ Pool is our initiative to build a floating pool for everyone in the rivers of New York City, and we need your help. We’ve spent the last year working with engineers, swimmers, consultants and planners studying what it would take to swim in clean, natural river water right here in the city. Now with your support here on Kickstarter we can bring + Pool one giant step closer to the water.
BACKGROUND (and why we think this is a good idea)
We started + Pool last June, during what seemed like one of the hottest summers of our lives. As a New Yorker, you spend most of your time on an island surrounded by water, and when it gets as sweltering hot as it does in New York, you naturally start fantasizing about swimming in the river. But the rivers here aren’t the cleanest and swimming in them isn’t necessarily the best idea. We wanted to do something that could change that.
