The much ballyhooed public art project by Olafur Eliasson is here. The New York City Waterfalls, posted at four points along the East River are now henceforth and until October 13, flowing. From the DUMBO office I frequent, there is an unobstructed view across the very active waterway to the post at Manhattan’s Pier 35.
Some are unimpressed. I, however, think they’re kinda cool.
