An amazing floating pool is being planned for NYC’s East River, but it needs your help. Called the + Pool because of its plus-shaped design, the waterbody already has the backing of many New York officials but it needs extra financing to complete a test model this summer. In exchange for contributions to its Kickstarter campaign, + Pool is offering personalized tiles to be permanently placed on the walls of the pool when it’s complete as well as the chance to be one of the first New Yorkers to take a dip!
