Concept for Floating Pools in New York City.

This concept for a floating swimming pool reminded me of a similar post I did a year ago..... These pools would provide a clean and safe area in the New York waters for public swimming. A pool within a river, how can you not like this idea? Anything that would keep dead animals and syringes out of swimming areas if fine with me...
The project was launched with the ambition to improve the use of the city's natural resources by providing a clean and safe way for the public to swim in New York's waters. This site is the culmination of Concept Design for + Pool and we are looking to build a team of interested organizations and professionals to continue the development of the project into a buildable proposal. Our next step is to partner with local cultural, developmental and environmental groups to raise public and private interest, identify civic potential and approach the municipality, while working with engineers, planners and specialists to refine the social and ecological performance of + Pool.

.....aaahhhh, I get it it's called + Pool because it is shaped like a Plus Sign. I'm a genius...

Nice concept. Why not? Since right now, we dont have enough space to build a resort so this alternative can really work!
