Cops: Too many boaters cruise into Niagara Falls danger zone

No Comments

From Niagara This Week:

An American police marine unit that patrols the upper Niagara River says too many boaters and people on personal watercraft are getting too close to the brink of Niagara Falls.

New York State Park Police Lt. Clyde Doty tells WGRZ-TV in Buffalo (http://on.wgrz.com/2feIsBJ ) that people put their lives at risk when they ignore buoys and warning signs on the river.

Signs are up at Chuck’s Roadhouse Bar and Grill

I posted about two months ago about Chuck’s Roadhouse Bar and Grill opening in the former Tony Roma’s location.

The Chuck’s Roadhouse Bar and Grill locations page shows that the Niagara Falls location is coming soon (no date given). There are now signs on the outside of the building.

NYC Developer Agrees To Meet With Falls Mayor About Undeveloped Properties

No Comments

From WIVB Channel 2 in Buffalo:

If you drive around downtown Niagara Falls you see constantly see vacant pieces of land with “Niagara Falls Redevelopment” signs on them.

The properties, totaling 140 acres in all, are owned by New York City billionaire developer Howard Milstein.

Milstein has done nothing with the properties since he bought them back in the late 1990s and that has been a major impediment to development in the Falls.

I was one of the first to point out that the new restaurant at the Baymont Inn  & Suites was going to be a Hooters. I took a few pictures as they were getting ready to open and signs were being put up, but I never got around to posting them.

Is Screamers closed?

2 Comments

It is possible that it has been like this for a while and I just missed it, but the other day I noticed that the signs on the front of Screamers House of Horrors are gone. For those who don’t know, Screamers is/was a haunted house attraction on Victoria Avenue. I don’t know if they are going to be undergoing some renovations, or if they are now closed. Their website is still operational.

Is the “Pile Driver” ride going to open again?

No Comments

The former Pile Driver ride at the bottom of Clifton Hill used to be part of the WWE store (run by Canadian Niagara Hotels). That closed a while ago, and the ride hasn’t been operational for even longer. Recently the signs have changed. It now says “Niagara’s 200ft Drop”. I wonder if it is going to open again…
