Soon this will be a waterfall

East River Waterfall New York Art Installation by Olafur Eliasson

I’m anxious for them to throw the switch on the New York City Waterfalls art installation. Artist Olafur Eliasson has designed four towers that will pump water up and let it cascade back down into the East River. The water will begin falling in late June.

The photo above shows one the waterfall towers on a pier, seen looking north from the Manhattan Bridge bike path (photographed in April). The other towers are located under the Brooklyn Bridge (Brooklyn side), below the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and Governors Island.
