Forget the Trash, Bring a Towel, check out the ingenious use of a dumpster to make a pool on the banks of the Gowanus Canal in industrial Brooklyn. It's actually three connected pools housed in Dumpsters, a boccie court, some lounge chairs, grills and cabanas.
The space has been open since July 4th weekend and has hosted barbecues, photo shoots and a film screening, all by invitation only. Macro-Sea, the company behind the pools, is using the project as a template for a larger idea: turning eyesore strip malls into artsy community destinations, with Dumpster pools and other indie attractions.
Can't wait to see one in person!
