New York City Waterfalls from the artist Olafur Eliasson finally began flowing today at the Southern tip of the Manhattan. This new installment will be the largest public art project since Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates that were featured in Central Park in 2005. I wrote about this a while back and am so excited that the project has finally come to fruition! I loooooove weird kooky art installments like this. I also love that New York supports such random projects! The waterfalls are located at Pier 35 in Manhattan, near South and Rutgers Streets north of the Manhattan Bridge; at the Brooklyn tower of the Brooklyn Bridge; Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn, west of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade; and on the north shore of Governors Island. You can see most of these clearly from the South Street Seaport. The New York City Waterfallswill be activated daily and kept on from 7am to 10pm. At night the 'falls will be lit from behind. LOVE IT! I hope it looks as smashing as it does in these pictures. If you click HERE, you can see the NY Times Slide show featuring the installation.
