Waterpod

This is a photo I took on a floating artistic/living space called the Waterpod, which has been visiting various sites in New York this summer. It's hard for me to describe what it is, so here is a description from their website, http://www.thewaterpod.org/. Waterpod™ is a floating sculptural living structure designed as a new habitat for the global warming epoch. It is currently scheduled to launch in New York in June, 2009, navigate down the East River, explore the waters of New York Harbor, and stopping at each of the five boroughs it will dock at several Manhattan piers on the Hudson River."

A neat idea, though the many who live on watercraft or barges at the 79th St. boat basin in Manhattan or across the water in the old Morris Canal basin have enjoyed living the concept for decades! But I suppose this employs green ideas as well & would like to see it.
