NEW YORK CITY WATERFALLS

As crazy as it may appear, this waterfall off the Brooklyn Bridge is real. The Public Art Fund & City of New York have approved their latest city art installation: New York City Waterfalls.Created by Danish designer/artist Olafur Eliasson, a series of waterfalls will be flowing around NYC from June 26-October 13. They are currently being built in four locations around the city (Brooklyn anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge, between Piers 4 & 5 in Brooklyn, Pier 35 in Manhattan, and the north shore of Governor's Island) and will be lit by LED lights after sunset. For bridge lovers like my Dad, I imagine the Brooklyn Bridge will be the most spectacular of them all....
