They opened the faucets Thursday forThe 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.
