From the Niagara Gazette:
It almost defies logic.
Niagara Falls, N.Y. sits on the edge of one of the great wonders of the world.
It boasts some of the highest-profile developers in America.
The local governments have an array of economic development agencies and programs and assistance packages at the ready.
Millions of visitors arrive each year, bringing with them millions of dollars in disposal income.
And yet, the community as a whole continues to languish behind its more prosperous cross-border neighbor — Niagara Falls, Ontario, a city that is literally walking distance away.

It’s sad that they haven’t managed to get their act together over there. It seems like we see a few articles like this every year.
You can pull up an article from the Gazette about NFNY from several years ago and find exactly the same stories. I’m surprised its not verbatim.
