Waterfalls for New York City

Yes it's true we are getting several waterfalls this summer in New York City. Designer Olafur Eliasson has designed these public art pieces to be displayed in the waterways & under the Brooklyn Bridge this summer. After the success of 'The Gates' - this project tries to follow in its footsteps. However, this doesn't excited me as 'The Gates' did. The magical element of 'The Gates' was the interaction of people, discussions it brought up, and the activity it created in Central Park. It was very tangible and the human interaction was in close quarters. If you haven't see the documentary done about it - it is a must. This exhibit will be spread out and I am unsure it will bring the same response. We'll just have to wait and see.{Images taken from Olafur Eliasson website}
