The Harlem River inlet at Inwood Hill Park has had a bubble pop up. Designed by Amanda Schachter and Alexander Levi, the Harvest Dome is constructed from 450 discarded umbrellas and floats on top of 128 2-liter soda bottles, which were sourced from New York City's streets and trash cans. The duo call it a "physical revelation of the city’s accumulated water-borne debris."
