Waterfalls in New York City

Today marked the opening of four New York CIty Waterfalls by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. The waterfalls are part of a New York CIty Public Art project and will flow until early October. The waterfalls are build on scaffolding and pump thousands of gallons of water out of the East River and then lets it fall back in. The falls range in size from 90 to 120 feet high. The project was several years in the making and is estimate to have cost around $15 million to pull together. The waterfalls will flow from the early morning until 10 at night. During the evening hours they shine like jewels in the night with lights. To see more images and an article check out the New York Times at this link. Photo by Vincent Laforet for The New York Times
