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

I received permission via mail yesterday from the owner with a contact number and intend on calling him tommorow. I will keep you guys updated.

I'll edit each posting to include coordinates and ownership information if necessary


If it wouldn't be too much trouble. It really helps, because some of these locations are foreign to me.

I'm pretty sure I did them all. Let me know if there's anything missing.

Apparently the person who I have received permission to view Morganville Falls from only owns the property along side the creek down stream of the falls. It is viewable from his land, however the falls belong on someone else's property and he has given me their names and addresses. I will be writing them a letter this week.

Beaver Creek Falls. Town of Sheridan, Chautauqua County. At the end of a short trail at a rest stop on route 39.

One of my wife's patients told her about this falls so we decided to go check it out in late October. I couldn't get a better vantage point than this shot through the trees. In the summer one could probably get to the base of the falls but on this rainy day there were too many slippery wet leaves all over the ground. It was hard to judge height from the top and through the trees. 40 feet high maybe?

Looks good, credit at the bottom is fine with me. Just one minor point.... :-D The county list at the top needs some links added to the entries for that county in the list. I didn't think you had any of our Rensselaer waterfalls up there until I scrolled down the list one day.....

... and expect some more falls in the coming weeks as I get the film scanned, only about 250 rolls to go.... :shock:

No credit needed...we are a team and each waterfall we can point out only helps to make NYFalls the best it can be!
