The man-made waterfalls, Olafur Eliasson's aquatic art project, were getting another test run this morning. Last week a late night test was witnessed by some at Pier 35, and this morning we saw the Brooklyn waterfall getting a test run at the foot of the Promenade (between Piers 4 and 5).
Below are some of our shots from this morning, as well as a rendering of what it is supposed to look like...think it'll live up to its mock-up? In person it actually looked pretty good.
The water for all four falls will be turned on June 26th, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, through October. If you've seen any of them being tested, send us the photos; so far no testing has been documented for the falls under the Brooklyn Bridge and on Governors Island.
