The Story Behind the Photo: August 21, 2010

Water by the Great Falls of Paterson

2010 marked the year our family returned to the United States from England, and we moved back to northern New Jersey, very close to where my wife grew up in Paterson. Whilst Paterson itself might feel a little run down, it’s still home to one of the best waterfalls in the country – the Great Falls of Paterson.

Technically a national historical park, the area immediately around the Great Falls is still beautiful, in a dilapidated, industrial sort of way. I particularly liked the old brick factories and power stations, left over from the days when Paterson was the silk capital of the world.

Tell me something!
