The incredible Cohoes Falls, when water levels are just right, shot from the East bank (and before the west bank was more developed). Some interesting facts from Wikipedia: The width of Cohoes Falls is roughly 1,000 feet (300 m), while Niagara Falls' width is 830 feet (250 m) for American Falls and 2,200 feet (670 m) for Horseshoe Falls The height of Cohoes Falls ranges from 75 feet (23 m) on the north side to 90 feet (27 m) on the south end. Niagara Falls' height is 70 to 110 feet (34 m) for American Falls and 163 feet (50 m) for Horseshoe Falls.
