The Great Falls of the Passaic Professional Review and Guide
"Explore the birthplace of one of our nation’s first planned industrial cities. This is an urban hike with sidewalks, street crossings, and paths. The route is a figure eight with spectacular views of the second-largest waterfall, by volume, east of the Mississippi River.Although they’re often called Paterson Falls, this seems decidedly unfair: The falls were known for a hundred years before the city of Paterson existed. Settlers in the 1600s noted their beauty, and 1700s picnic parties from as far away as New York came to see the massive waterfalls in the Jersey hinterlands."
