Danish art star Olafur Eliasson wanted to reconnect New Yorkers with their waterfront. At a cost of $15 million, Eliasson has designed four massive waterfalls, ten stories high, in New York Harbor. He took Studio 360's Pejk Malinovski on a boat ride to inspect them before the water started falling.

Watch a video of the waterfalls:
