Floating Swimming Pool Spotted in Brooklyn

Is Germany too far away to swim in a floating pool? Turns out there’s one in Brooklyn, NY.

The “Floating Pool Lady” is located at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy on an old barge — very similar to the one in Berlin. However, Germany’s pool is stationary, while Brooklyn’s is free-roaming, with plans to swim to “pool-deprived Williamsburg or South Bronx, so residents there can take a dip,” according to the Brooklyn Paper.

What: The Floating Pool Lady
Where?: Brooklyn, NY — Between Piers 4 and 5 (near Furman and Joralemon Streets), two blocks north of Atlantic Avenue. (For now.)
Cost: Free!
