Alcohol can flow in Wilmington



High Falls Gorge is hiring two more employees at the café, Reiss said, because of the anticipated increase in business.

“The local community will benefit from this law change in two ways: There will be an increase in employment to properly staff the expanded businesses, and there will be an increase to the sales-tax base in both Essex County and New York state from the new revenue.”


High Falls Gorge will hold a grand opening of its beer and wine bar from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4. Live musical entertainment and giveaways will be offered.

Reiss said the new bar area will have a strong local feel.

“The unique bar top and counters in the room were made by (High Falls) Property Manager Bob Bell. He used slabs of wood harvested from local trees, then artfully inlaid agate slabs into the wooden tops.

“The beverages served will include locally produced draft beer and a selection of New York state wines.”

People can enjoy a beverage while looking out at the spectacular High Falls Gorge, she said.

“It is my hope that guests will take time to slow down and take in the amazing scenery around them.”

High Falls Gorge features a half-mile scenic walk into the granite-walled gorge, where there are a series of four waterfalls more than 700 feet high.

The gorge will open for the season on April 22 this year with hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission for adults is $10.95 and children, $7.95.
