They’re Here

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.

  1. I saw them for the first time yesterday…I loved them. It was like someone’s giving us a bit of Niagara in the city…

  2. Oh, I agree. Others are transfixed as well. Many of the vessels (both small and large) which traverse the East River have been idling nearby to get a closer look.
