This is an interesting area. We were there after a rainfall, so there was a fair amount of water over the falls. It's also interesting to see the remnants of businesses of days and a time long gone by. We enjoyed the scenic view.

An incredible walk along the city streets to be captivated by the historic walk way to High Fall. The walkway provides a scenery gives way to a beautiful water fall. Nature in its splendor.

I went with my girlfriend. It was great to see the falls. We admired them as the sun set. The rapids were fast that day.

I had never been to Rochester, so we did some exploring. Nice to be able to read the history of the falls.

The Bar, Restaurants and shop are on either side of the bridge to view the falls. Its cool to see a water fall with a city view all around it.

Great free walking spot. At night there are light displays at different times of the year. I visited during the day on a walk. Great view.

We visited this area from the Platt Street Bridge. Wonderful views and good photo opportunities from there We visited the museum and also went to the brewery across the bridge. A fun way to spend an hour or so.

Lovely place to visit in the afternoon. Beautiful views of falls, river and cityscape. We ate lunch at the brewery then wandered down the bridge enjoying the view.
