Ithaca Falls is most definitely the symbol of Ithaca, New York, a city settled within the crossroads of deep gorges, bordered by acclaimed colleges, and rife with manufacturing history. The waterfall itself is massive. Towering over 100 feet tall and stretching nearly 175 ft across at its base, it can fill the adjacent neighborhood and Cornell’s western flank with a thunderous roar in spring. By autumn the frothy cascade slows and students take to the banks to read or practice photography among the turning leaves.
