The New York City Water Falls art installation has not been without controversy. The Brooklyn Heights Association asked that they be turned off a month early claiming salt water spray was causing damage to nearby foliage. Instead operating hours were cut in half.
Created by artist Olafur Eliasson they will by on display until October 13th. There are four in total. The largest, at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, is 120 feet. They flow Tuesday and Thursday-Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Monday-Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
