From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:
The Niagara Global Tourism Institute (NGTI) has asked the city of Niagara Falls for $50,000 to create three blocks of public WIFI between the Seneca Niagara Casino and Niagara Falls State Park on Old Falls Street.
The purpose of the WIFI is to help tourists avoid the “roaming” charges that sometimes happen with phones that are close to Canada, and to also encourage tourists to expand their trip outside of the State Park.
From the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal:
State parks officials unveiled renovations at several key areas in Niagara Falls State Park this year, but the planned work is just beginning.
Three Sisters Islands, Luna Island and Prospect Point with groundbreaking ceremonies this year. Those projects make up a small portion of the $40 million worth of upgrades planned for the park over the next four years, with the bulk of the work set to take place on Goat Island.
From the Ethiopian Review:
Mother Nature never ceases to amaze us. If, at times, we forget the awesome power she wields, all it takes to remind us is a glance at one of the earth’s most magnificent works of art: the waterfall. Monstrous in size, a fall’s power—and, most often, surreal setting—keeps visitors mesmerized year after year. Whether taken in from above, while looking down at the plunging water, or from afar for a pure panoramic effect, the nine waterfalls below are loved for their soaring heights, peaceful sounds and remarkable histories…
Niagara Falls in North America
This massive waterfall, which partially resides in Ontario, Canada, is located in America’s oldest state park—the Niagara Reservation State Park. Classified as a segmented waterfall because the water flow splits into two side-by-side falls, Niagara Falls is one of the most powerful waterfalls in North America. Four of the five Great Lakes (Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie) drain into the Niagara River before spewing into Lake Ontario—which makes up one-fifth of the world’s fresh water supply.
