Chasing Waterfalls

First, New York City had The Gates. Now, we have The Waterfalls. Created by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, 4 waterfalls were installed in the following locations:
Under the Brooklyn Bridge (on the Brooklyn Anchorage);
Between Brooklyn's piers 4 and 5 (west of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade);
Pier 35 in Manhattan (adjacent to South Street at Rutgers Street -north of the Manhattan Bridge);
and Governors Island (on the north shore)

The exhibit will run from 26 June through 13 October. It will be open from 7 AM until 10 PM, except Thursdays 9 AM to 10 PM. They will be softly lit at night. The project will run on green power and will protect aquatic life and the river.
