OH, HI, ALEXANDER HAMILTON. I didn’t see you there. Don’t mind me while I marvel at this incredible view. You know, Alex, (can I call you


Alex?) I heard about the famous rainbow created by this waterfall, but I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes before today. Simply gorgeous. Beauty and brawn. Last week’s


heavy rain seems to have made the falls even more powerful. The hydro- electric plant to my left must be buzzing with clean energy today. Call me crazy, Alex—I am talking


to a statue, after all—but weren’t you the one who first suggested using this waterfall as a power source? I remember reading somewhere that you visited these falls in the late 18th century and envisioned using them to run mills and factories. If I’m right, it was your idea that


resulted in the creation of the nation’s first planned industrial city. Over the years, several companies used these falls to power their factories. The Colt company even made a model of its famous revolver right here. That’s quite a legacy, Alex. Quick


question, though: Where Am I? ¿
