When I was a child, Niagara Falls was a lovely little city. I remember a pretty downtown ( were there actually two different "downtown" streets?) , lots of gift shops, motels, and, of course, the falls.
Now it's kind of an empty shell.
I've asked people who live or lived there and nobody seems to be able to answer the question: what happened? I hear about chemical spills and corrupt government...
As a tourist now... is there a "pretty area" of the city where I can stay? I love Goat Island and visiting right UNDER the falls... but where can one stay overnight now, please, and not look out at very sad neighborhoods?
