250_waterfalls.jpgThe highly ambitious but relatively uninspiring public art project known as the NYC Waterfalls have at least one major critic, River Café’s owner Buzzy O’Keeffe. The 80-foot waterfall at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge is spreading saltwater onto his trees, turning them brown. O’Keeffe claims he planted the trees 32 years ago. But after a few months of the Waterfalls operating, the restauranteur’s beloved landscape at his waterfront eatery are “clearly showing signs of stress,” according to Parks Department First Deputy Commissioner Liam Kavanaugh. |NYP|
