With a history dating back to the early 1800s, Glens Falls is located in northeastern New York between Saratoga Springs and Lake George. Situated at the base of the Adirondack Mountains, it is a gateway to the Adirondack State Park, a 6 million acre park with more than 10,000 lakes, 30,000 miles of rivers and streams.
It is the home to the Adirondack Thunder, the AA feeder team to the NHL’s New Jersey Devils and it also served as inspiration to James Fenimore Cooper for his historical novel, The Last of the Mohicans.
Like many other cities in the U.S., Glens Falls has struggled in the recent years to maintain services without large tax increases. Adding to this challenge is the population shift in the city. Since 1950, Glens Falls has lost 25 percent of its population.
