Ranger Sarai's thought of the day: "What I love most about working at the #PatersonGreatFalls is that it's in the city I grew up in and the city my family continues to live in. From time to time I'll get random visits from my family and it just brightens up my day" #NPS #VisitNJ #Paterson #FindYourPark at Great Falls National Historic Park

T minus 7 days to the Total Solar Eclipse! On August 21st, 2017, a solar eclipse will be running across the continental U.S. for the first time in 38 years! Join Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park rangers and youth corps members for eclipse viewing and programs from 1:30pm to 4:00pm, and learn why we are the only planet in the solar system experiencing total solar eclipses! Design your own solar eclipse, and decorate a pinhole projector for further eclipse viewing fun. The peak time of the eclipse will occur at 2:45pm, where 70% of the sun will appear to be covered by the moon in the Paterson sky. We will have free eclipse viewing glasses and t-shirts while supplies last! #TotalSolarEclipse #Eclipse2017 #FindYourPark at Great Falls National Historic Park

Today we celebrate a great triumph over the barriers of racial segregation through one of Paterson's most celebrated local heroes. Larry Doby was the first African American baseball player to join the American League while enduring the prejudices of Jim Crow and racial segregation. Today we celebrate his legacy and remember how this man began his career as a minor league player in Paterson's very own Hinchliffe Stadium. If you're further interested, we're providing special tours on the history and legacy of Paterson's Hinchliffe Stadium on Saturday, July 8, 2017. The first tour will start at 11:00 AM and the second tour will be held at 12:30 PM. The tours are free and open to the public, so please come out and celebrate the legacy of Paterson's historical landmark. The tour will be meeting at Hinchliffe Stadium, 8 Maple Street, Paterson. #LarryDobyDay #VisitNJ at Great Falls National Historic Park
