The New York City Waterfalls, a major work of public art by artist Olafur Eliasson is now on display through October 13.

The exhibition of four man-made waterfalls of monumental scale are on view on the shores of the New York waterfront: one on the Brooklyn anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge; one on the Brooklyn Piers, between Piers 4 and 5 near the Brooklyn Heights Promenade; one in Lower Manhattan at Pier 35 north of the Manhattan Bridge; and one on the north shore of Governors Island.

The Waterfalls, which have been designed to protect water quality and aquatic life, will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, except Tuesdays and Thursdays, when they will run from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Waterfalls will be lit after sunset.

Mitchell - I saw it on the news and I am sure it will be well received, I have never met anyone who did not like a waterfall.

IMHO, art is an important reflection of society. I am happy to see New York City's continued support of the arts.

Tom, Waterfalls are a good reason to visit the city.

Kathleen, I asked the same question.

Jennifer, I never have either. There is something about waterfalls.

Rich, I agree, A couple of years ago the city had an art display of radiating orange flags throughout central park called The Gates.

Mitchell:  I saw a fairly long video of the waterfalls... might have been on MSNBC's website.  It also showed them at night, with the lights on behind them.  Just gorgeous.  Thanks for sharing.
