New Year Offers Connection with Cohoes of Yesteryear


Shown here is historic Harmony Mills #3. In the foreground is a hydropower canal that today is Power Canal Park located on North Mohawk Street.

As we move forward into this New Year, it's time to look ahead to what's in store for the Friends of Cohoes Falls. Beginning February 2011, Brookfield will offer a glimpse of yesteryear through a collection of Cohoes-related photos and drawings from the early- to mid-1900s. Cohoes native Mike Pender -- the owner of this compilation -- has graciously agreed to share these images with the Friends of Cohoes Falls! Check out the Friends of Cohoes Falls website periodically as additional images from this historic collection are uploaded.

Overlook Park Contiues to Delight Visitors 

Brookfield reminds you that Overlook Park off North Mohawk and School Streets is open year-round for fantastic views of Cohoes Falls. In fact, a FOCF recently reported seeing two bald eagles soaring over Cohoes Falls during a crisp, clear winter day.
