Watertower (2012) by Tom Fruin.

It is a monumental water tower sculpture in colorful salvaged plexiglas and steel. It is mounted high upon a water tower platform becoming part of the DUMBO, Brooklyn skyline.

This amazing installation is a tribute to the iconic New York water tower and a symbol of the vibrancy of Brooklyn.

Fruin has created from roughly one thousand scraps of plexiglas. It includes such details as interior and exterior access ladders and an operable roof hatch.

The locally-sourced plexi came from all over New York City—from the floors of Chinatown sign shops, to many other places.
