As promised, I checked out the "Waterfalls" to see if Friday's shutdown was only temporary. It was.
Walking down to see the one right under the Brooklyn Bridge I headed down on of my favorite streets because of the view at the end.
It was too bad it was such an overcast day. On a clear day you can see the Chrysler Building perfectly centered in the lower arch of the Manhattan Bridge. I will make a point of re-shooting this one day. It also looks nice at night when the Chrysler Building is all lite up.
Well, as you can plainly see, the "Waterfalls" were back in business. I have to admit, though, that I didn't see a lot of tourists flocking around.
As I have mentioned before, unlike "Gates," the large installation in Central Park a few years ago, there really isn't any good viewing points for these "Waterfalls" unless you pay for a boat ride. And you certainly can't interact with them. A few people who have tried had to be rescued when their kayaks overturned. The Harbor Patrol now actively keeps people from venturing too close.
I, personally, like the smaller sculptures along the waterfront, the ones that kind of surprise you.
More My Style
Okay, enough with the diversions already. My next post will be about my last full day in Rome and conclude my European adventure. I guess I have just been delaying the inevitable. It was a fun trip even if I didn't get into the seedy casinos by the train station.
