NY Route 30: The Adirondack Trail: City of Gloversville

City of Gloversville

The City of Gloversville is connected to the City of Johnstown, so they are sometimes called the twin cities. Gloversville is also the Glove City, on account of the many glove kniting mills that once were there, as well as tanneries. Gloversville is on NY Route 30A, Comrie Avenue just up the big hill from Fonda and the Thruway. NY Route 29A, or Fulton Street, go through the city east-west and through to Caroga Lake and Stratford. The city is 7 miles south of the Adirondack Park boundary, which is in Mayfield. It is the last area with the normal large suburban strip stores on NY 30A, Comrie Avenue, or NY 30 northbound until you get to Malone 160 miles away.

The city is surrounded by the Town of Johnstown, which is half agricultural, half woods and hills. There are state forest lands that actually go into the city limits. So there is some good hunting, but you have to be nice and sweet and ask the local farmers and landowners, in the town, not the city, for permission to hunt.
