I'd never heard of Gloversville until I saw this post today. Coincidentally, "Empire Falls" is the next book in my to-read pile.

And just now, looking up the bio of Frederic Remington (he lived in Kansas briefly), I come across another Gloversville reference. Remington got married in Gloversville:

March: Moves to Kansas City; invests first in a hardware store, then in a saloon
October 1: Marries Eva Caten in Gloversville, New York; couple returns to Kansas City


"Empire Falls" is really well written.

I ran across a reference to Remington as well. I don't think he stayed in Gloversville for too long.

Samuel Goldwyn, the G of MGM, lived in G'ville for a while as well.
