Historic New YorkThe 150 mile-long Genesee River rises in Pennsylvania and flows northward into Lake Ontario. Though relatively a small stream, except in flood stages, it has cut, in its middle portion, a deep gorge with walls rising 600 feet above foaming waters. This spectacular section in Letchworth Park has been called "The Grand Canyon of the East." The Genesee then courses into a broad, level intervale before again tumbling over a series of falls at Rochester. There the river's water contributed greatly to Rochester's development.
