A team of designers wants to create a floating pool in the East River off Dumbo right in front of the Empire Stores complex, DNAinfo reported. The pool would have its own filtration system that would make river water safe to swim in. The group needs to raise half a million dollars to create a life-size mockup of one part of the pool to test. They’ve already raised more than $40,000 on Kickstarter, partnered with an engineering firm, and have the support of various governmental agencies and waterfront groups, according to the story. The cross-shaped pool would have a sports pool, lap pool, lounge pool, and kiddie pool in each arm. If funding comes through, construction could start as soon as August 2014.
