They opened the faucets Thursday for The New York City Waterfalls, the industrial strength art project by Olafur Eliasson at four locations along the city's eastern waterfront (see pictures at the Looking Around blog here). Each of them consists of a steel scaffolding between 90 and 120 ft. high, about 27 to 37 meters. River water is pumped to the top and spills back down in a wide cascade that will flow daily til 10 PM.

i am obsessed with this bicycle bag by cha cha, i love this image so much. On her etsy site you will find one of a kinda hand crafted handbags. Each and every bag starts in her Toronto studio by drafting all unique patterns, they are made to order and she makes every single stitch with love.
This was an awesome find on etsy. I really dig the tea towel that says "do the dish".. i think i need this in my life, especially because that has always been my chore growing up and even now with my boyfriend that is my chore as his is taking out the trash.

Make Music New York is a new live, free musical celebration across the city that took place for the first time on June 21, 2007.
On that day, public space throughout the five boroughs – sidewalks, parks, community gardens, and more – became impromptu musical stages and dance floors, and social meeting points. Thousands of amateur musicians, in every genre, played on the sidewalks for the biggest crowds of their lives. Professional musicians performed for new audiences, who came out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free. And everyone was invited to sing along and enjoy the first day of summer.
The first MMNY included 560 free concerts with 1,927 musicians. We are planning an even bigger festival for Make Music New York next year, on Saturday June 21, 2008.
WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?
Make Music New York is based on France's Fete de la Musique, which has been a great success for 25 years. Since it was inaugurated, the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 300 cities in 108 countries, including Germany, Italy, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Australia, Vietnam, Congo, Cameroon, Togo, Columbia, Chile, Mongolia, and Japan.
Brooklyn, NY based I Am The Heat will release their 2nd EP, The Future Doesn’t Need Us in July of 2008. I Am The Heat are a post-punk art rock/garage rock band with an explosion of melodies, hooks and danceable bass lines. The Future Doesn’t Need Us mixes funky bass lines, disco drum beats and eclectic guitar work to back the pleasant lead vocals of Jameson Edwards.
There is a bit of a lo-fi quality to The Future Doesn’t Need Us, ala The Figgs’ early work, but as the EP progresses to songs such as Silver Skies and Tonight (I’ll Save You), a little more polish is evident. Dream Machine is ultimate garage sound, and Your Monsters is almost purely danceable power pop. What Would Lou Reed Do is a frenetic exercise in pure post-punk pop and is by far one of my favorites. They defiantly have catchy tunes that keep my feet happy tapping away and they are all so adorably cute to boot aside from their completely amazing covers for both records.
They will also be participating in Make Music New York!
