Gloversville NY

For over a century Gloversville was the prosperous industrial center of an international glove & leather industry. Our gloves traveled all over the world and our downtown streets were bustling centers of the city. Many of the historic buildings are being used by the shops and businesses of the BID.

There are also opportunities to live downtown - some in newly renovated spaces. Factory & warehouse buildings are sprinkled throughout the downtown and city as well.
