What Bert Has To Say About Glens Falls Metro Area

Glens Falls is a minor industrial center and gateway to the Adirondack Region to the north. It is located just to the north of the Albany–Saratoga Springs area along the Hudson River. The town is quiet and boasts a pleasant small-town feel with low crime, moderate living costs and good air quality, but there isn’t much to do in the immediate town. As typical with the region, economic prospects are not strong. Living costs are moderate; not the cheapest in New York.
