Here's what you need to know about +Pool, the zany little thing that'll float around the East River filtering river water for use in the pool itself: well, that's pretty much it. Oh, and that its support group Friends of +Pool have teamed up with Print All Over Me and the artist Mike Perry for a limited-edition run of men's and women's swimsuits. Like, super limited: There's only ten available of each style.
Your chances of grabbing one is also limited, too. The $250 suits will initially be available at Friends of +Pool's first fundraiser, where tickets are going for $150 each. After that, what's left will be available on POAM's website. But don't worry, proceeds of the sale go toward a good cause: Funding the pool's existence.
