    I liked the sketches better. Guess nature does some things better than man

    what a completely lame project. fall so short of the renderings one could sue for fraud.

    I’m sorry. Not trying to be cantankerous. But what an utterly worthless project. The trickle of water just looks pathetic compared to the giant scaffolding.

    My verdict: Meh.

    (And I fully support public arts projects.)

    Add me to the dissent. To me, they look like some kind of “exhaust” apparatuses from a water treatment plant, especially with the ugly circular rubber booms laid down in the river underneath.

    Sam Champion is still married to Mike Piazza. They have a place down in Cape May.

    The falls are creating bad traffic jams on the BQE going all the way back to the Gowanus as drivers slow down to gawk.
