New York springs for summer waterfalls

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The Big Apple is all abuzz about the 90- to 120-foot-tall mechanical waterfalls that will be going up around the city this summer. The $15-million "New York City Waterfalls" project is a Christo-scale public art installation that's the brainchild of Scandinavian artist Olafur Eliasson.

The water will be flowing 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily from late June to early October at four spots: Pier 35 in Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn and on the north shore of Governors Island.
