4-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Monument.  (first go is here)

Back in 2008 (before the bubble burst and the economy crashed) New York City was graced with some monumental artwork.  “New York City Waterfalls” by Olafur Eliasson consisted of four waterfalls placed in the East River. They ran every day from June 26 through October 13 between the hours of 7am and 10pm. It cost 15 million dollars, all paid by private funds. The bulk of the money (over 13 million) was supplied by Bloomberg LP – thank heavens while he was Mayor Mike Bloomberg had no input into the company!

They were a lot of fun while they were around.
