Olafur Eliasson’s New York City Waterfalls seems to be the art project that just keeps giving. Unfortunately, what it's giving is DEATH. Remember when The River Café was complaining about the projected damage the artwork was doing to its trees? Yeah. Well, "aboricide" is the word of the day over at The Brooklyn Paper today. Here's what the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation has to say about arborcide. Intentional or unintentional . . . you killed some trees, Olafur. Start plantin', dude.
