Niagara Falls from the New York side!

I've been living in downtown Niagara Falls for a while and I think it's great to have a place to finally show some stuff! I see alot of photos taken of the falls from Canada, I can even see my penthouse in some of them, Iwonder if I was home that day the photos were shot. I always look at the windows to see if I can see myself!

Most of these shots are from my bedroom window, some are out and about on the streets! Lt me know what you think, I need to hear whatyou think! I think I want to enlarge some of them!



The is the Rainbow Bridge! No rainbow today though, just a passing storm.


This is down at the edge looking towards canada once again!


The flowerbeds on Prospect Point looking at the Skylon!


This is a very special place to me, it's quite, private, and Ienjoy going here to get away from everyone.


These rocks have been here for many years, perched just above the falls they dont move even though they're coverd in ice every year! Notice you can wade into the water, it's actually illegal to do though.


Once again, this is Three sisters Islands, becareful, dont slip, the drop is about 10 feet down at the end!


This wall is alll thats left of the old aluminum factory which fell into the gorge years ago! It now the site of the Schlocofft museum, I hope I spelt it right! Lol!


I'm not sure why, but moring time is the best time to shoot the mist, It usually goes straight up and makes a huge whopping smoke looking billow!


everyday the clouds are soemthing to watch, It's amazing to me that I get so much enjoyment from just looking at the coulds. here are different days, all at differerent times of day!







the demo of the old falls icon, the Wintergardens. Wonder how many weddings were preformed in here.


This is St. Mary's of the Cataract, (cataract means falls, not eyes in this sense!)


This is the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel directly next to the church listed above!


Crowne Plaze with the starbucks I go every day almost!


And this is the view from my dining room window, can't really see but the river is behind this building and Lake Erie is directly to the left, there was a great storm the other night, so I got lucky with this shot!

Yes! I have three sides of the building to look out, so i'm able to get pretty much the wole city from here, the only part i can't see from here is the old nabisco plant area. but then there's not much to see that direction anyways!

I just got back from visiting family in New York a couple of weeks ago, and we went to Niagara Falls for the first time. It is a reallly pretty sight to see and a great city! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Sorry to everyone, but I took my photos offline because I found that a certain manufacter actually trolls sites looking for pictures and put them on their stuff and sells it. Imagine my suprise walking into a store one day and seeing my photos on postcards and suveniours. So that why I took them down.

That's too bad. Hopefully you continue showing us your city and area (which I'm in a lot and like to see once in a while).
