Leading the High Energy Culture: What the Best CEOs Do to Create an Atmosphere Where Employees Flourish

Why does this author love Little Falls?

Little Falls holds a very special place in my heart. It’s the epitome of a community that has all the elements for a quality-of-life that people have come to realize is most important, post-COVID. As co-founder of Rock City Development, I feel privileged to help support the revitalization and continued growth that is becoming an example for communities like it. My wife, Lori, and I hope to plant seeds that will ultimately produce a beautiful “garden”, which we may never see, but will benefit many in the generations to come.

(The Revelations Series)

Why does this author love Little Falls?

I love Little Falls because of the tight knit community it is.  I recently moved back after 25 years and am glad I did.  I can’t wait for the virus to end so my kids can experience the life I had growing up here, with Canal Days and baseball games.

What does this author love about Little Falls?

I love the history and architecture of Little Falls. I love it so much, I chose to travel from New York City to be married at the Overlook Mansion. I remembered stories my grandmother had told me about sneaking up to the Overlook lawn as a teenager to get a close-up view of the mansion. I was so glad she got to be at my wedding.

Get in the Car: A Food and Travel Memoir

• Get in the Car: A Food and Travel Memoir

• Red House Project
Blog about renovation - the house she purchased in Little Falls in 2010 on my blog.

• Let’s Go
Blog about traveling and food and "life" in the Mohawk Valley she was writing when we were all "derailed" from our travels because of COVID.

Why does this author love Little Falls?

The reason I like being in Little Falls is because we really are centrally located.  Five minutes to the New York State Thruway is a definite plus for all my “Get In the Car” adventures.  And the fact that we are less than half an hour from the Adirondacks with all its beautiful mountains, lakes and walking trails is magnificent. I also have a huge garden in Little Falls and love to grow all my own vegetables and herbs plus support our local farmers!
