O.K. The Waterfalls. Whether a monument, sideshow or other (like The Gates), it draws a crowd. It is hard to experience because of the river locations and the feel is more diffuse. It was most interesting to see other people grappling with the experience. Art up close, marketing opportunity (Panasonic) or tourist phenomena? The jury is still out. A better bet was seeing Eliasson's work at MoMA or PS1. You can still see it online. Take a virtual tour and save your nickel, no, make that ten bucks.
