From the Niagara Falls Review:
Dan Aykroyd, you’ve got some explaining to do.
Local fans might be wondering who they’re gonna call after the ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ star called Niagara Falls, New York “a little prettier” than its Canadian counterpart during an appearance across the river Saturday.
Aykroyd was promoting his Crystal Head Vodka at Supermarket Liquors on Niagara Falls Blvd. when he praised the American city as “one of the unpolished gems of American architecture.” As he received the key to the City from Mayor Paul Dyster, Aykroyd raved about the city’s infrastructure, original office buildings and power dams.
“In Canada, we say we have the longer Falls and maybe the prettier ones,” he said. “But I think the city of Niagara Falls, New York is a little prettier than Niagara Falls, Canada.”
It’s a comment which made Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson chuckle.
“Well, he is a comedian,” he cracked.
