8. Central Park


There are actually five waterfalls in Central Park, all manmade and designed to fit in with the prehistoric rock formations all around them. The water that flows here is actually New York City drinking water that comes from a 48-inch pipe hidden by the rocks at the Pool Grotto on West 100th Street. The waterfalls are primarily connected through a stream called the Loch.
