A town in Southern Ontario, Canada
, best know for it's hisoric horseshow-shaped waterfall. A growing tourist destination over the years, it is now home to many casinos, clubs, hotels, restaurants, and Gentlemen's Clubs
. Sometimes refered to as the Las Vegas
of Canada. A popular area is Clifton Hill
, where people from many countries, and locals from other municipalities in the Niagara region
can be found, because it's just about the only good place to go if you live here. Unfortunately, this this area is heavily policed, because of the car loads of American college students who come over to go to the bars and start chirping
people and starting fights because they've never been to a bar before or had good Canadian beer
, which is stronger then what they have back home.
Non-Canadian: "So, where are you from"
Non-Canaidan: "Ohhh, igloos, hockey, and Niagara Falls!"
Canadian: "Umm, yeah I guess"
Niagara falls is an odd city. That's right, it is a city. Everyone knows Niagara Falls for the waterfall but very few know the true Niagara Falls. First of all there are 2 cities. There is Niagara Falls, New York, and Niagara Falls, Ontario, (In Canada).
Now back in the prime of Niagara Falls, New York we had a population of about 100,000 people or more, people can't agree on the exact size but it was a decent sized city. Niagara Falls, New York was just like other rust belt city, its economy was based on Chemical Plants, and Industrial Plants. As the industry left, poverty and crime went up.
On the other hand, Niagara Falls, Ontario managed to keep most of it's industry, and now it is focusing on tourism by using casinos. The Niagara Falls, Canada skyline is getting bigger and bigger each year. The Niagara Falls, Ontario skyline now rivals big American cities.
Niagara Falls, New York was run into the ground by corrupt, and mentally retarded politicians. Now it is a crime ridden slum. Not only that but in order to boost tourism the local politicians have prevented the news media from talking about the rise in violent crime.
So basically you have 2 different cites on each side of a waterfall. You have a vibrant and growing city on the Canadian side, and the American side is struggling to catch up with it's Canadian twin,
Niagara Falls, New York has turned into a small version of Gary, Indiana.
Tourist: Oh Reginald, I love Niagara Falls lets go to this lovely little shop called a ...liquor store?
Mugger: Give me your money bitch!
Tourist: Oh Reginald this town is so dirty, my goodness, this man is wearing a trash bag.
Mugger: Bitch! Don't talk shit about the bag, just give me the money.

Niagara Falls, NY is a shithole that for some reason everyone loves to call home. people that live there rarely actually go to the falls unless they work there. home of jonny flynn
and paul harris
. you haven't had a steak and cheese sub til you've been to viola's. collosso taco is a staple. third streets crazy.
" I'm from shitty Niagara Falls, not sure why but i love it..."
Do not confuse Niagara Falls, New York for Niagara Falls, Ontario. Niagara Falls, NY is a hole. Niagara Falls, ON is beautiful. Then again, most Americans have yet to actually visit the real Niagara Falls.
Only thing Niagara Falls, NY is good for is cheap gas. Even the whores in Niagara Falls, ON are better.
Niagara Falls, Ontario:
A thriving, affluent city of 80,000 people with casinos
, high rise buildings and good nightlife. It surpasses its American
neighbor, Niagara Falls, New York due to a more vibrant tourism industry which was largely built up in the 1990s, and a stronger economy. Niagara Falls, Ontario also has a better view of the falls.
Niagara Falls, New York:
A Rust Belt
city remotely resembling the nearby city of Buffalo
, New York
in a region known as Buffalo-Niagara
. The area originally had several chemical plants and industries, due to the vast power of the Niagara River, but now has a high unemployment rate of about 12% and a failing economy. It is the site of Love Canal
, one of the worst pollution disasters in US history. At its peak it boasted well over 100,000 people but has since declined to nearly half of that. It falls behind its Canadian
neighbor, which has a much stronger economy and a vibrant tourism industry.
Child: Are we going on vacation in Niagara Falls, NY?
Parent: Hell, no! We're going to Niagara Falls, Ontario!
Niagara Falls, NY: A shithole.
Niagara Falls, ON, Canada: Slightly better than Niagara Falls, New York, but still a shithole, despite what people think. Due to the tourism many are deluded into thinking that Niagara Falls is a clean, thriving city. This is primarily due to the upkeep of the tourist section of it, however, one only has to go up a couple blocks from the main tourist area to be in the dirtiest, grimiest part of town.
where many college students go to drink booze legally
My plan for spring break is to go to Niagara Falls and go bar hopping.
