SEARCH ENGINE: Hydro plants built to impress

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Q: As I was driving in Niagara Falls past Dufferin Islands near the falls, I noticed how beautiful the detailing on the power authority buildings are. It must have been some intensive work to get the shaping of corners and windows on those buildings. The architecture of those buildings are a treasure and I was wondering who cast or built them for the authority?

I made a U-turn and saw part of the engravement is spelled with a “v,” as in avthority. Why is there a “v” instead of a “u” on the engravement?

A: The stately facades of the old power plants along the Niagara Parkway in Queen Victoria Park have stood the test of time…

What beautiful spring weather! (photos)

Yesterday was a warm and beautiful day in Niagara Falls. As I was out for a walk at lunch, I took a bunch of pictures. Enjoy!

April showers (lots of them) bring before-May flowers

I posted back at the beginning of March that the crocus and other plants were starting to come up. Well, with all of this rain and temperatures in the teens, the daffodils are everywhere!

2016 in review: Niagara Falls

This is the Niagara Falls Review’s summary of the year 2016. This isn’t all tourism-related, but obviously has some things highlighted.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

January

• The numbers are in for attendance at the city’s annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza at Queen Victoria Park. Organizers said 35,000 people attended the free concert featuring Tom Cochrane, Alan Doyle and Down With Webster. It was the first concert in many years not to have been televised.

New Year’s concertgoers stompa their feet

From Niagara Falls Review:

For High Valley singer Brad Rempel, it was a far cry from his last visit to Niagara Falls.

Before hitting the stage at Queen Victoria Park on New Year’s Eve, he recalled being so broke he stayed in a dingy hotel room that didn’t have a phone or TV, “ and had knife stab marks in the door to the bathroom.”

This time? While walking around the Falls with his family he came across a poster of himself: “That was cool.”

Midway through the band’s set, he soaked it all in. “This is easily the best view from the stage we’ve ever had.”

I recently posted a few pictures along Queen Victoria Park from the Winter Festival of Lights. Last week we also drove through Dufferin Islands, but I didn’t take any pictures. I did however get a copy of the “Make It Your Winter Tradition” booklet. I’ve scanned it, and you can view it here if you are interested.
