New York’s Public Art Fund is financing a series of man-made waterfalls on the East River. Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson designed the waterfalls. They will rise 90 to 120 feet above the river. This will be an expensive but fascinating endeavor at a cost of about $15 million. Look for work to start around mid-July.
