First Photo of an NYC Waterfall Turned On

New, 34 comments

Artist Olafur Eliasson's four NYC Waterfalls may not officially be making their debut until June 26, but why wait to get a glimpse of the soon-to-be-sensations in action? Take a look at what was going on at Pier 35 near the Manhattan Bridge. Folks: we have water. Writes our new favorite Curbed tipster: "I woke up in the wee hours last night and noticed that Olafur Eliasson was testing the waterfall on Pier 35. This craptacular photo depicts the glory. Or whatever." Sure, the strength of the stream looks like a little weak for this test, but it'll pick up once the tourists start snapping away. What's up now, Niagara?
