As of last Monday, the New York City Waterfalls project, created by the artist Olafur Eliasson, has had its hours of operation cut from 101 to 50. The reduction is the result of a complaint by The Brooklyn Heights Association
that the salt water from the installations was damaging waterfront plantings along the Brooklyn Promenade. The group had originally asked that the installations be dismantled after Labor Day, but October 13 remains the final date.

You can see the waterfalls now from 12:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and 5:30 p.m. to 9
p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.
