Here’s a sneak peek at Olafur Eliasson’s “New York City Waterfalls,” which will send water cascading from under the Brooklyn Bridge and from three free-standing scaffolds in New York Harbor — including this view of Governors Island off Red Hook — from July through October.

In the spirit of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s “The Gates” project, Eliasson’s $15 million art project will consist of four waterfalls, towering between 90 and 120 feet, that will gush between 7 am and 10 pm every day.

“My point is to open up the possibility of a nature-based experience within an urban setting and allow us to reconsider our experiences of nature,” Eliasson said.

The falls will be easily viewed from the Brooklyn Heights promenade.
