Many of Improv Everywhere’s public pranks and experiments have involved large crowds of people. But in this time of social distancing, they went the opposite direction with their latest stunt. While the idea of working from a floating office in the middle of NYC’s East River has a certain appeal, but it might be a little distracting.
