Although New York is right by the sea, you’re unlikely to go for a dip in the local waterways unless you’re swimming with the fishes. But what if you could cool off in a floating swimming pool with real river water?

That’s the idea behind Plus Pool, a large, cross-shaped pool that you could practice your backstroke in from just above the waves of the East River.

Two years ago, the notion branded as “+ POOL” raised more than $40,000 on Kickstarter, and now it’s about to wrap up a second, bigger campaign that could add $250,000 to the dream of river swimming in the Big Apple.

Here’s the pitch: “+ POOL is designed to filter the very river that it floats in through the walls of the pool, making it possible for New Yorkers to swim in clean river water for the first time in 100 years.
