The Finger Lakes are 11 glacial lakes in New York. The lakes all tend to be long and narrow and run roughly north to south. Seneca and Cayuga are the largest, both being roughly 40 miles long, and over 400 feet deep. The glaciers that carved out the lakes also left behind many hanging valleys resulting in many waterfalls. There are dozens, if not hundreds of glens around the lakes, most of which feature a waterfall or two. Many of these waterfalls are on private property but many are on public land or accessible to the public. In addition to being the largest of the lakes, Seneca and Cayuga also feature the most impressive waterfalls.

West of the Finger Lakes is the Genessee River and its many waterfalls. Lake Oneida in the east is sometimes considered the "thumb" of the Finger Lakes, and waterfalls can be found south of this lake.

Lots of information on waterfalls in the Finger Lakes Region is available on the web.
