It launched in New York July 2009, navigating down the East River, exploring the waters of New York Harbor, and stopping at each of the five boroughs docking at several Manhattan piers on the Hudson River.

{{Wikipedia excerpt|Waterpod}}

The Waterpod was a community-based public art project in New York City in 2009. Open to the public, an ecosystem on a barge called the Waterpod visited the five boroughs at eight different piers for two weeks at a time during the summer of 2009, hosting a series of events. It was designed as a futuristic habitat and an experimental platform for assessing the design and efficacy of autonomous marine living systems in preparation for an assumed future.A multinational team including artists, designers, marine engineers, and civic activists led by the artist Mary Mattingly alongside the New York City Office of the Mayor Special Projects, the United States Coast Guard, and the New York City SBS Dockmaster Unit, this was a cross-disciplinary project that took place in the waterways of New York City in 2009.
