(Newser) – New Yorkers can feast their eyes on an unusual site over the next four months—waterfalls. Four manmade falls, each about 100 feet high, came to life yesterday at different sites along the East River, the Daily News reports. City officials hope the structures—the work of artist Olafur Eliasson—will bring in loads of tourists before they come down in October.
