Could a Giant, Plus-Shaped Pool Be Coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park?

The Brooklyn Eagle reports on an amazing plus-shaped, floating pool a trio of designers wants to tether off Brooklyn Bridge Park.

An engineering company’s feasibility report has confirmed that the pool is technically possible, and enthusiasm (as measured by +Pool's Kickstarter campaign) seems to be building.

The Kickstarter goal is $25,000 (to conduct filter testing). According to the Eagle, by last Thursday roughly 80 backers had kicked in $7,000. Just one day later, more than $10,000 had been raised, donated by 185 backers.

When we checked early this morning, 326 backers had pledged $14,757.

In the long run who will pay for the upkeep? This would be so expensive. A simple park is in the best interest of New Yorkers. Just like the carousel and the rest of the park it is going to require so much money to keep going. A simple park with ball fields and playgrounds would have been such a simple solution.

Sadly it will cost us all for the price of "cool".
