Brownstoner reports that the Brooklyn Heights Association is calling for the Waterfalls under the Brooklyn Bridge to be shut off:
Salt-soaked spray from the falls has been damaging and possibly even killing trees caught in their mist; the spray has also damaged cars parked by the River Café. Those calling for the faucet to be turned off swear their objection isn't aesthetic, although the Brooklyn Paper noted that the falls, by the BQE, Brooklyn Bridge, Pier 35 in Manhattan and along the FDR, were supposed to be viewable from many Brooklyn spots. Instead, they say, they look "more like a giant Erector Set from the borough’s shores."
