Brooklyn Bridge Waterfall from jakedobkin on Vimeo.
Olafur Eliasson's hyper-anticipated Waterfalls began flowing this morning at 7am, under a dreary, overcast sky. They'll be from 7am to 10pm every day until October 13th, except on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when they'll be turned on at 9am. For a list of good viewing spots, click here.
We'll be reporting live on the falls throughout the day. In the early afternoon, we'll have photos from the first press boat tour, and at night, we'll add pictures of the waterfalls all lit up with pretty lights. Stay tuned-- and send your pictures and videos to tips (at) gothamist (dot) com.
Related: Brownstoner was also out early this morning and got some pictures of the Waterfalls and the new pop-up park next to Fulton Landing-- another nice place to see the Falls.
