 This is a really cool project for NYC. I think it will add a zen like feeling to a city that is a concrete jungle. I hope to see it in person, as I’m sure it’s going to look gorgeous.

“An artist’s rendering of the New York City Waterfalls project, proposed by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, is seen here in this undated handout photo. Four giant waterfalls will be erected in New York for three months this summer in a public art project city officials hope will create $55 million in extra tourism revenue for the Big Apple. The waterfalls, including one that will fall from the famed Brooklyn Bridge, are the brainchild of Eliasson. They will cost $15 million, to be funded by private donations to New York’s Public Art Fund.(Olafur Eliasson- Courtesy Public Art Fund/Handout/Reuters)  “
