Got $75K you want to, say, throw into the East River? Or maybe you've got a compulsive spending habit that makes you want to throw yourself into the East River? NYC's Buckingham Hotel has a water-themed treat that's right up your alley!

To celebrate artist Olafur Eliasson's man-made waterfalls that have been installed along Manhattan's East River this summer, The Buckingham is offering a special waterfalls package for the ridiculously rich only.

But it includes some of our best friends -- champagne and diamonds -- so we weren't too turned off by the $75,000 price tag.

So, first of all, with the 75K deal, guests obviously are staying in the penthouse suite, which is ready and waiting for them upon their arrival complete with a champagne waterfall. But that's nothing. Tiffany gets involved soon.

Yes, we said Tiffany. Keep reading.

From the penthouse suite, guests take a limo to a private yacht with a full open bar (duh) and catered dinner from The Sea Grill.

Then it's back to the limo and over to Tiffany and Co, where guests receive a Tiffany Legacy triple bar drop pendant with diamonds in platinum.

Then, more waterfalls!

Wake for a private jet trip to Niagara Falls - a 173 foot drop of stunning beauty. Once there, lunch awaits at the world-famous revolving dining room at the Skylon Tower 775 feet above the falls - a spectacular view only matched by the cuisine. Next, it's off to take a personal helicopter ride swooping along Niagara River, from the Whirlpool Rapids to the Horseshoe Falls, where rainbows appear and disappear in all directions.

Okay. Yeah. If only we had $75K.

Better news for guests who do not generally bathe beneath a waterfall of $100 bills: the hotel also offers a $377 package that includes a stay in a one-bedroom suite, an NYC waterfalls cruise and drinks at Harbour Lights (a restaurant with views of two waterfalls).

Those curtains are looking a little haggard. I dunno.
