New York, NY August 6, 2008 - The New York City Marriott hotels are offering tourists and New Yorkers the opportunity to share in the wonder of the New York City Waterfalls, a public art project comprised of four, man-made waterfalls conceived and created by highly lauded artist, Olafur Eliasson.

The instillations are located within the New York harbor and are on display between June 26, 2008 and October 13, 2008. This special Marriott hotel vacation package in NYC includes tours of the New York City Waterfalls project and:

Two Grey Line sightseeing bus tickets (hop-on, hop-off) that allow guests to enjoy the New York City Waterfalls by land while traveling to the Circle Line boat tour.

The New York City Waterfalls vacation package helps support this public art project and allows visitors to New York and New Yorkers looking for a relaxing break in their own city to tour around the four different waterfall locations along the edges of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island. The waterfalls are specifically located at the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn anchorage; between Piers 4 & 5 in Brooklyn near the Brooklyn Heights Promenade; the North shore of Governor's Island; and Pier 35 in lower Manhattan north of the Manhattan Bridge.
