Let The Power Fall.


The New York City Waterfalls are beautiful.

I'll admit I wasn't too impressed with it when I first saw it yesterday from the South Street Sea Port...even though I could see all 4 falls from that vantage point. I was hoping they'd look better at night with some lights and you've proven that they do. Great shots, Brent. What IS the color of water?

The color of the water.

The work is the same size as an actual set of waves, so the viewer’s experience is similar to that of being at sea, where one loses visual contact with nearby waves, creating the sensation of total immersion.

they look pretty lame in the daytime though. really thin. MORE WATER!!

Yeah. That's what I've heard. I've only seen them at night. It's like the Edgar Winter of public art projects.

First public art project I will be forced to look at twice a day, every commute to and back.
Thank you Manhattan Bridge and the Qtrain.

I still hate the one under the bridge-- it's totally perverse.

The one in btwn Manhattan bridge and Willsy bridge is the best one by far.

it's the visible armatures that i'm not crazy about. they're kinda like christmas lights... they look great at night but during the day all you see are ugly ass wires.

2000 Toys. You rule.

Oly. I love that you called it "perverse."

Dubbbbbz. I really like the armatures when looking straight on.
