Located in the Mohawk Valley, New York State
Main Street First : P O Box 65 : Little Falls : NY 13365


So much has been happening in our City this year.
Main Street First has become a fully committed member of 'Keep Mohawk Valley Beautiful' and through
their involvement has secured considerable publicity as well as a grant that was used to
restore and improve the area south of Canal Place along the Canal waterway.

Main Street First has been very active in keeping the City looking cleaner and ensuring that small areas
of landscaping, such as outside City Hall, are maintained. The latest project is the area of the Old Pump House on
West Monroe Street at the jumction of Church Street.

The group meets every two weeks on alternate Mondays at 6:30pm in the Commercial Building just across from
the Library on East Main Street. Why not stop in and hear what we are doing?

In the same week as the Price Chopper opening, the ribbon cutting took place by the Mohawk Barge Canal climbing
rock area of the new composting toilet. Pictured right, at the ribbon cutting is our City Mayor Bob Peters center,
Mike left and Chico right.

Little Falls never looks better than it does in the Fall! Surrounded by the hills, which are covered in all varieties of
trees, the colors can be stunning. Every Third Thursday our local merchants have many special
offers - what better time to come visit us and get a bargin while in the City?

Many people who visit our
web site are not quite sure
Little Falls is located.

The red dot in the southeast corner of Herkimer County is Little Falls.

We suggest that you get off I-90 at exit 29A Central New York State and spend a few hours in our City. Walk down our Main Street, visit Canal Place, or the Lock - the Worlds third highest single lift lock at 48 feet.

We are just four hours from New York City, four hours from Boston and four hours from Buffalo.

"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight or for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendents will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819-1900)

"We believe that land-use issues should be guided by a set of smart-growth principles that incorporate centralized development, protection of natural resources and our working landscape, development of transportation options, and healthy neighborhoods where we can walk or bike to our destinations and have ready access to recreation"
Noelle MacKay, Smart Growth Vermont Executive Director
