Waterfalls, in NYC?

8 May

nyc waterfallsSo, apparently, as a plot to gain even more revenue from tourism, New York City will have waterfalls along the East River.

From Press Release, “The New York City Waterfalls, a major new work of public art by internationally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson, will be on view in New York’s East River from late June through mid-October 2008. Commissioned by Public Art Fund, the project consists of four monumental, man-made waterfalls temporarily installed at sites along the waterfront in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island.” Here is their site

Personally, I think adding a gorgeous flow of water anywhere around the beloved bridge sounds like something I would enjoy viewing everyday on the commute home.
