Paterson Great Falls National Park: More than scenery

Flanked by schoolchildren waving handmade signs in front of a statue of Alexander Hamilton, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Paterson Mayor Jeffery Jones yesterday signed an agreement dedicating Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park in a ceremony that officials hope will mark the beginning of a renaissance for the city where America’s Industrial Revolution began.

“Paterson and its falls played an integral part in the industrial growth of our nation and in the lives of immigrants who labored in the mills and ultimately joined unions to seek better working conditions and pay,” Salazar declared. “By establishing this park, we not only tell the story of Paterson, but we also contribute to the economic growth of the city.”  (Magyar, NJ Spotlight)
