Neil Patrick Harris Throws His Support Behind East River Swimming Pool

The +POOL is an ambitious public swimming pool project that has been floating (pun intended!) around for a few years now. It involves a floating pool sitting in the East River, shaped like a plus sign in order to maximize the external surface area and filter the water efficiently enough to provide a clean, safe pool to swim in. In this video from sponsor Heineken, watch as actor and Harlemite Neil Patrick Harris narrates the origin story and vision of the +POOL.

Heineken has partnered with the team from +POOL to bring a water-filtering, floating swimming pool to the city of New York!

After several years and hundreds of thousands of dollars, the project still needs our help. Want to see the +POOL come to life? Sign the petition to help the cause.
