"Facing The Wall" is the story of Elmira New York and the river that runs through it. A river that helped give birth to the city, fueled its economic growth, inspired its artists and writers, and defines the city in a way no other single object or person ever could.
It is a story about the city's struggle to recover from the lingering damage caused by a devastating flood in 1972—an event that continues to influence its development to this day. And ultimately, it is a story about the positive steps being taken to view the river as an asset, rather than a liability.
Nearly 40 years after unspeakable devastation, Elmira is finally...facing the wall.
