A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

2010 - What's Missing?

A place to discuss waterfalls. Including the parks that house them and the hikes to get to them.

2010 - What's Missing?

Postby Matt » Mon Jan 04, 2010 2:09 pm

Here's my once-a-year attempt at getting my list up today.
All the help is greatly appreciated!
Take a glance here: http://www.nyfalls.com/waterfalls.html
and let me know what is missing.

The information I need:
Waterfall name (or park name, or placeholder name)
GPS coords, or acme/google map pinpointing the location, or approximate location
brief description or website link to description (especially if we have a message board topic on it)
Number of falls (if known)
Property status (this is very helpful)

What I add to that page gets reciprocated on the map.

anyone who helps this year will get credit at the bottom of the waterfall index page.
Thanks! I'll be adding these in batches.

There is a large falls here maybe about 75 feet high. Is possibly private but there were no posted signs as of a few years ago.
