New York's heat wave couldn't have come at a better time...

Following a three-year hiatus, this past Wednesday evening + POOL alongside Julie Rice and Elizabeth Cutler hosted a fabulous pool party to celebrate the season and support the nonprofit's mission of creating a water-filtering, floating pool that would make the East River a clean swimming destination for all to enjoy.

Held at The Bellslip, a brand new waterfront property in Brooklyn's Greenpoint Landing, the rooftop benefit brought together a cool crowd spanning the worlds of art, architecture, music, business, real estate and more, ultimately raising $75,000 for + POOL’s free educational and environmental programming.

Curious to see inside the splashy soiree?
