The New York City Waterfalls by Olafur Eliasson

I’m sort of behind on posting about this, but Olafur Eliasson is installing four giant waterfalls throughout New York this summer. The falls will be located most noticeably below the Brooklyn Bridge, looking almost like it’s pouring right out of the bridge, or so the mock up looks. The other ones will be put between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn, on Governor’s Island, and on Pier 35 in Manhattan. The project should be completed sometime in July, and will run until October.

I’m hoping these turn out as good as the other work I’ve seen of Eliasson’s. His exhibit at the MoMA definitely gives me a good amount of hope.
