  • Visited after major storm on the East Coast, and snowmelt showed the power of Mother Nature. Despite the cold, it was crowded with people wanting to see the spectacle.

  • Great place to visit, unfortunately the surrounding neighborhood is crime ridden and a dangerous places after dark. The falls are truly a natural wonder if nearby worth the visit. I wouldn’t...

  • Excellent walking tour led by a National Park Service Ranger, Bernard Trubowitz. He did a fabulous job of informing us about the history of the falls, the city of Paterson, and the social issues...

  • Really nice find in Paterson! Impressive waterfall with nice views. The bridge is closed at this time, but you can get next to it for to see more of the park. Safe with many families and park rangers there for information. Highly suggest checking this place out.
  • A cool hidden treasure!! The area could be cleaned up/maintained more but that's up to visitors to tidy after themselves as well. Construction makes it a little concerning to walk around to the other side by the main street. Otherwise it was a fun day date.
  • It's a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the city. But looks like it's getting polluted and mixed with sewer. Can visit and read the history of the renewal hydroelectric power generation which was closed long time back. There are some construction going on to maintain the place, hope by the summer it will look more maintained. Also, I went in winter session so not much crowded.
  • It’s a beautiful landmark and wonderful falls in a slightly rough area. You can view the falls from the parking lot, the lower deck, or climb up and go to the bridge above the falls. It was closed when I went in mid April, maybe due to the weather or season, but it was still a great view.
  • I love the natural beauty of the falls which is rather unusually situated in an urban area. The main overlook, which is near the parking lot would offer the best views. The bridge was closed otherwise that would have been a better view..
