Black River Quadrangle

Felts Mills FallsFrom NY 3, enter the hamlet of Felts Mills.  Island Street is adjacent to the Post Office.  It is a short dead-end street with a barrier at the end that is within feet of the river.  From this point, you can see this drop.

You are actually looking at the river left channel.  The land on the opposite shore is an island.  There is a dam here which does not appear to be in use.  As the pictures show, the opposite side of the channel is a short drop while on the side closer to you, the water flows through the remains of some type of outdated structure.

The Black River empties into Lake Ontario at the Black River Bay, just southwest of the village of Dexter.
