Niagara Falls too slow for some

No Comments

From the Times Record News:

I’d never given Niagara Falls much thought until the other night when I watched the ‘50s movie thriller fittingly named “Niagara” on TCM. Its scope, even on film, was compelling.

Curiosity about this majestic wonder sent me on a tour of video and educational websites. So lean back and relax children while I fill in some blanks about this one time Mecca that held American honeymooners captive.

I say one time Mecca because most travel authorities today no longer rank Niagara Falls as a prime honeymoon spot. The best places to ‘moon in fast-paced modern America include several islands of Hawaii, Jackson Hole, Charleston, Vail, Lake Tahoe and Lost Vegas.

Falls, Gorge site tour by USA Niagara a “Fail”

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Reporter:

The latest skirmish between the David of the citizens of the city of Niagara Falls and the Goliath of state agencies such as State Parks, USA Niagara and the New York Power Authority, when it comes to waterfront development, appears to have been settled in our favor, at least for now.

“I am comfortable calling a VICTORY on this,” posted film industry executive and community activist Ken Cosentino on social media late last week, “…there will be no commercialization down in the gorge, and nothing will be constructed that will interfere with the natural environment. All business endeavors will strive to use pre-existing structures; all enterprises will be geared more towards providing equipment rental (such as fishing poles or snowshoes) to tourists in order for them to best enjoy the gorge in its natural state… USA Niagara will respect the resolution passed by our City Council on Monday, July 24th. So, to reiterate, we the people of Niagara Falls, NY have officially preserved the Niagara gorge.”

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Metrolinx and Niagara Parks are teaming up to make it easier for people to experience one of the country’s top tourism destinations.

The provincial transit agency’s seasonal Go Train service from downtown Toronto to Niagara resumes June 23 and, with the new partnership with Niagara Parks, visitors will be able to purchase travel packages that combine a round-trip GO Train ticket with access to the Wego transportation system.

“We are truly excited to be working with Metrolinx on this project as we invite visitors to immerse themselves in the rich history, world-renowned gardens, trails and pathways and breathtaking natural beauty that characterize Niagara Parks and the entire Niagara region,” Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission, said Monday at Table Rock.
