a city in the province of ontario, canada that is outside of buffalo. many college students do go here to drink booze and get shitfaced legally since the drinking age in canada is 18. however they rarely check id's so some high school kids try to get in to the bars and i say try it cuz most of the time it works. this city does kick ass and canadians kick ass in gneral, but however its pretty "americanized" because of all the tourists. it's not what i say "real canada"...well no it is real canada but if u've been there you know what i mean..theres no sugar shacks...real maple syrup...snow parks...traditional food. some of the best restaurants are here and the greatest casions and hotels. like the hard rock cafe =) clifton hill is the main street of niagara bc it is known for the great american midway arcade..haunted houses.souvenir shops...restaurants...ripleys museums..watch it thugh a lot of those haunted houses are cheesy..the good shit is at "screamers" haunted house with live chainsaws and shit. it also has the best hotel the great wolf lodge...which is an indoor water park. marineland is here too but that place is a seaworld wannabe and it sucks now it used to be good. but however if you do want to see real canadian culture dont go to niagara falls.

niagara falls NY- is a part of buffalo where two main party schools are..UB (university at buffalo) and the even biger party school NU (niagara university)...like most other colleges partying is taken more seriously than academics.

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.

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, hotels, 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.

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.
If Niagara Falls, NY, is a shithole, Niagara Falls, ON is an outhouse.
