    From the Buffalo News:

    When David Stebbins was growing up near 15th and Pine streets, the Falls fostered a love for cities that has carried through his decades-long career as an urban planner.

    “When I was a young boy, when you walked down Falls Street, the sidewalks were wall-to-wall people. There were shops and restaurants and movie theaters and all kinds of stuff,” said Stebbins, 57, vice president of Buffalo Urban Development Corp. “[Now], it’s not the Niagara Falls that I knew when I grew up. I’m saddened by the decline.”

    From Niagara This Week:

    The streets are crowded, bodies are packed tightly aboard the Maid of the Mist Tour boats as they chug toward the foot of the Horseshoe Falls. Throngs of fun seekers on the sidewalks lining Clifton Hill spill out on to the road way.

    There seems to a be a buzz in the air, but is tourism on the rise or is it all an illusion worthy of Greg Frewin?

    It really depends on who you talk to
