Press Attention Through Art

waterfallsweb Press Attention Through ArtNearly 30 television cameras and countless reporters have gathered to hear Michael Bloomberg launch his latest public art project, aptly named "The New York City Waterfalls," here at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan.

One reporter who covers City Hall regularly wondered aloud how to get Bloomberg’s attention during the Q&A.

It’s one of the largest crowds I’ve seen gather to hear Bloomberg, proving he can still get lots of attention without it necessarily being based on ruminations about his political future or frustrations with Albany.

All the new faces in the crowd seem to be foreign press.
