The High Falls (or Upper Falls) of the Genesee River in Rochester, New York is a fine waterfall located right smab in the middle of the city. This makes for a rather interesting urban setting for the waterfall view, which I am not sure whether I like or not, but it is quite different, and the falls is certainly a good one.

The falls is visible from the pedestrian-only Pont du Rennes bridge in the Browns Race district. It is impossible to miss it.
