I know this board is dedicated to upstate waterfalls, but I'm downstate, so any findings would be helpful. I recently discovered this beautiful falls located in Croton Gorge Park, on Route 129 in Westchester County. The falls is the spillway for the New Croton Dam, built in 1906.

I am strong, because I've been weak.
I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
I am wise, because I've been foolish.
