Downtown Niagara Falls, Canada

Downtown Niagara Falls, Canada
Away from the hotels, casinos and the bright lights of Clifton Hill...











































































You'd feel cheated if there wasn't a shot of the falls:

Wow very neat town. Interesting mix of influences there in terms of the architecture. Thanks for the tour. Hopefully this town can bounce back a little bit in its downtown.

Looks like a cute little town, with some nice buildings. A few of them need a bit of touching up, but the place looks like it has some character. Thanks for the pics!

Was there a nuclear winter there or something??! Where are all the people, why is it so run down?

I would have assumed that the area would be affluent, not borderline ghetto.

Before the Niagara Falls Chamber of Commerce tries to kill me, this isn't what you'd see if you went to Niagara Falls as a tourist. This is the old downtown. All the tourist stuff is closer to the actual falls. Here are some shots from Clifton Hill:

Neat pictures, I hope the town can be rejuvenated.

Ouch, reminds me of Waukegan, Illinois. How sad to see such a dilapidated place.
