The Falls on the Genesee River:
There are six falls on the Genesee River.
Three are located in Letchworth State Park.
In Rochester, there are three waterfalls.
The three falls are: the Upper or High Falls, the Middle Falls and the Lower Falls.
High Falls can be viewed from the Pont de Rennes Pedestrian Bridge.
