A tourist in New York City. Water tanks in roofs. The water tank project

Uno de los elementos de arquitectura, así son pues están sobre los tejados de muchos edificios, son los tanques de agua.
Estos tanques de agua, de los cuales quedan miles en Nueva York, se usaban para facilitar la distribución del agua por gravedad a los pisos ante la dificultad, a finales del sigloXIX y hasta bien empezado el siglo XX, de llevar el agua por presión a los pisos altos.
Además no pocas veces sirvieron para apagar incendios en casas...
En esta foto vemos a unos de esos tanques decorado, posiblemente por participar en

Launching summer 2014, The Water Tank Project will transform the New York City skyline.
Artwork by acclaimed artists and New York City public school students will be wrapped around rooftop water tanks throughout the city, celebrating the talents of established and emerging artists, and calling attention to the global water crisis.
