While the government is trying to prevent sea level rise from washing away the northeastern seaboard, a team of designers have launched an imaginative new concept that’ll make sure a sandy beach is always within reach for New Yorkers. Developed by Blayne Ross and a team of designers, City Beach NYC is an artificial floating beach that is meant to dock anywhere along the Hudson River. Still in its initial conceptual phase, the City Beach NYC team plans to launch their Kickstarter next week and, if successful, aims for an opening date as early as 2016.
