    Niagara Falls lit up on dark winter nights

    From the Ithaca Journal:

    The nightly spectacle of Niagara Falls lit up after dark just got more spectacular.

    A $3 million upgrade saw the installation of 1,400 new high-tech lights called luminaires that beam brighter and more vivid rainbows of light from Canada onto the famous waterfalls.

    Mixed together, the separate red, green, blue and white LED units can illuminate the waterfalls against the night sky in endless combinations that range from subtle hues to deeply saturated colors.

    Perched on the upper level of an 1899 building known as “Illumination Tower,” the high-intensity system unveiled Dec. 1 replaced a bank of 21 spotlights, each 30 inches in diameter, that were equipped with colored gels.

    If you’re looking for your latest Instagram post or selfie opportunity, you might want to look across the border.

    Niagara Parks is unveiling its new Illumination LED light display Thursday evening – promising new, brighter, more energy-efficient Xenon lights with 1,800 color combinations on the Canadian side of the falls.

    From Forbes.com:

    It’s a tall order to be one of America’s most iconic landmarks, especially in a country that boasts Yosemite Valley, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and dozens of other natural wonders that exist nowhere else on earth. But ask any American—or virtually anyone in the world who’s travelled to the U.S. for that matter—and it’s almost a sure bet that they’ve heard of Niagara Falls.

    From the Buffalo News:

    A high-definition LED sign 13 stories tall now drapes off the side of Niagara Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ont.

    The three-sided digital billboard is purported to be the largest of its kind in Canada.

    The new sign, which went into operation in mid-May, is roughly as tall as the static “Casino” sign that hung on the building since it opened 11 years ago, said Greg Medulun, director of communications for Fallsview.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The Niagara Falls skyline in New York will soon look a little more like the Niagara Falls skyline in Canada.

    The Seneca Gaming Corp. on Monday announced it is building a billboard-sized video screen atop its Niagara Falls casino.

    Like its competitors across the Niagara River, the Seneca casino by month’s end will display the word “CASINO” from atop its 26-story tower.

    But unlike the Canadian gambling halls, the LED screen on the hotel tower will also be able to flash promotions or display live video like a giant television.
