+POOL

New York, New York

Friends of + POOL is working to provide free and safe access to New York's East River for swimming. It is the driver of + POOL, a self-filtering, floating swimming pool that filters river water through the walls of the pool, cleaning more than 1,000,000 gallons daily while creating a public, recreational space for New Yorkers to enjoy the water that surrounds them. In May 2021, Friends of + POOL received a confirmation to proceed with due diligence on the project in the waters north of the Manhattan Bridge from the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The organization produces free public and educational programs to celebrate safe access to the river, promote water stewardship; and educate the public on the issues affecting our water quality.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
