Blayne Ross wants to bring beaches back to Manhattan. City Beach would be an artificial shore created from a shipping barge with enough space and sand for up to 600 people at a time. The barge could float and dock in several places on the Hudson, and be stored for the winter. The project is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo.
