Bye-bye NYC Waterfalls. You were either a boom or a bust, a cool thing or a big disappointment. Some people think you murdered a bunch of trees, especially the crew up in Brooklyn Heights. The city says they drew 1.4 million people and generated $69 million in spending, which some people say is twaddle. In any case, they're being dismantled as we speak and here's one view of one of them coming down, tube by tube. Ciao, waterworks. In the meantime, there's always the big freaking Brooklyn waffle.
