"The New York City Waterfalls," rendering by Olafur Eliasson, 2008

This summer, artist Olafur Eliasson is creating four waterfalls in New York City's East River. The 90- to 120-foot waterfalls will run from late June through mid-October on most days from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The locations are underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, on the Brooklyn side; between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn Heights; on Governor's Island (near the Statue of Liberty); and in Lower Manhattan at Pier 35 north of the Manhattan Bridge.

Circle Line Downtown has already begun to sell tickets for yacht rides to see the waterfalls, with tickets for 30-minute rides starting at $10. (
