THE GATES - New York City, 2005

What's New


In Central Park, New York City.


Public park. Free.


Well, this is a waterfalls website, and yes indeed, there are waterfalls in Central Park. We found three of them after asking several dozen people if there were any waterfalls in Central Park and getting nowhere. Finally, a Central Park Conservancy volunteer directed us to "The Ravine" and we did find the three waterfalls shown here. A subsequent web search revealed opinions ranging from three to five as the number of waterfalls in Central Park...

But waterfalls were not what brought us to New York City on a fridgid day in February, 2005; it was "THE GATES," Christo and Jeanne-Claude's gift to New York and the world.

We spent two wonderful days walking among "saffron waterfalls" and joyous people from all over the planet. It is an experience we will never forget.
