    The plan calls for removing a 2-mile section of the Niagara Scenic Parkway in Niagara Falls.

    And it’s getting some good reviews.

    “We certainly see it as a positive opportunity for us,” said Gary K. Siddall, executive director of the Aquarium of Niagara. “There’s a lot of obstruction (now) with the bridge over the parkway and the parkway itself. It cuts us off from the tourist areas.”

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Underused or vacant properties are not exactly new in downtown Niagara Falls.

    In fact, some of the parcels now being eyed by the state as part of an acquisition plan referenced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in January have been out of public circulation for quite some time now.

    Under Cuomo’s Strategic Land Acquisition Program the state has targeted several dozen properties near Niagara Falls State Park for redevelopment.

    The idea is to reactive what officials have described as key parcels on the outskirts of Niagara Falls State Park.

    Goat Island may be the best place to see the falls in Niagara Falls, USA. The island is surrounded by the mighty Niagara, the bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. In fact you are so close to the falls, it’s startling!
