The New York Times has Waterfalls fever also, featuring an image of the public art project that is set to flow starting tomorrow by 9 a.m. First announced in January, the project, conceived by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, involves four man-made waterfalls along the shores of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island: by the Brooklyn anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge, between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn, in Lower Manhattan at Pier 35, and on the north shore of Governors Island.

The massive project, which involved constructing the waterfalls and a number of tests to check the system (1, 2), runs through October 13. And here's the official New York City Waterfalls website. Circle Line is the official tour provider, but the waterfalls can be see from land, by bike and--for the waterfalls near Governors Island and the one between Piers 4 and 5--by Governors Island and Staten Island ferries .
