From the city sidewalks, it is easy to forget about the thousands of water towers perched overhead. These little hat-like embellishments are a staple of the New York City skyline; we can spot more than ten from the Untapped HQ alone! Beyond their crucial functionality, water towers possess an aesthetic appeal that continues to be an inspiration for art and architecture today. Here are 10 of our favorite water towers across the city.

1. Tom Fruin Glass Water Tower, DUMBO

Tom Fruin’s renowned Watertower sculpture is situated in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Watertower is composed of nearly a thousand fragments of plexiglass, all locally scavenged. Catch wonderful views and a beautiful light show of Fruin’s artwork from Brooklyn Bridge Park. The original was taken down in June but there is still a replica on the roof.
