Elegant Shopping in a Lovely Historical Setting!


The quaint shops, galleries, restaurants and inns situated in the old mill buildings and storefronts along the waterfront of Canal Place have become known as the happening place for the arts in the Mohawk Valley. Not so long ago, many of these buildings were working mills serving the garment industry. Even today, after conversion to serve as retail space, many of these rugged but lovely structures speak to our great regional manufacturing heritage. If you are looking for fine arts, entertainment or antiques, you simply must pay a visit to Canal Place!


Canal Place in Little Falls!

Canal Place offers a wonderful opportunity for sightseeing! As soon as you arrive, you may enjoy the gardens and industrial-style sculptures of Sterznar Park, which was created over the footprint of the old Allegro Shoe Factory, which in its hey-day employed hundreds of local residents. Be sure to walk over to Benton's Landing, situated between the Erie Canal and the Mohawk River, and see the remains of the ancient aqueduct connecting the old canal to the port facilities that once existed here. Next, you may take a short walk to Lock 17 and Moss Islands, to witness the natural wonder of the giant potholes carved out of the stone by a Pleistocene-era water fall larger than Niagara Falls as the ancient Lake Iroquois drained into the predecessor of the Mohawk River. Crossing Lock 17, you can pick up the New York State Bike Trail, which connects Little Falls to points east and west.
