From the Buffalo News:
A group of tourists on their way to Niagara Falls a decade ago would first notice the crumbling city streets.
Then came the seedy hotels and shuttered attractions of a ghostly downtown.
It looked nothing like the kind of place millions of world travelers flock to each year.
But as Lt. Gov. Robert J. Duffy cuts the ribbon this morning on Niagara County Community College’s $30 million Culinary Institute Niagara Falls, the landscape has changed considerably.
It doesn’t match the scale of development in Canada, and most acknowledge that the city is years away from realizing its potential.
But after decades of staying away, successful developers are finally becoming interested in the American side of the falls.
