Boundless Brooklyn Water Tower Craft-NYCBoundless Brooklyn DIY water tower, customized by The Drif

While it might be a dream of many to have their own water tower on a New York rooftop, Boundless Brooklyn has fun customize-your-own mini water towers through 100% recyclable kits you can get online. They’re lasercut in Brooklyn from chipboard and can be painted using acrylics. At the Brooklyn Museum last Thursday and at several upcoming events, street artists are teaching us average citizens how to tag our own water towers. Also available: the famous Kentile Floors sign, modeled after the one in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Broundless Brooklyn. Boundless Brooklyn was started by two graduates of NYU’s ITP program who seem to love water towers just as much, if not more, than we do.
