"I grew up on niagara street"

Niagara Street brings a flood of memories.

It runs from downtown buffalo to niagara falls (called different names as you go along, but it is still niagara street). A few miles from downtown buffalo, niagara street passes by the peace bridge which is a beautiful bridge, one of the entryways to canada. This is where i grew up. We weren't rich and to this day, this part of niagara street is not a place for rich people. Even though we were not rich, we had a wonderful view of the niagara river, we could walk on the breakwall which runs parallel with niagara and we could watch the lights on the beautiful peace bridge at night.

Places come and go on niagara street, but the people are about the same. I still live in the area and rent out apartments there. You have to remember that this is an urban area and one has to be careful as in all cities, but the price of apartments is very low and you get a huge mix of multi-ethnic people who "rattle and hum" like no other place around. This is my place, i love it. I am not afraid because like any neighborhood you live in and come to love, you know who belongs and who doesn't. It is this way on my part of niagara street.

The economy may be poor, but for nothing, i can still look at the niagara river and the peace bridge from my window and take a walk on the breakwall on a hot summer day. Come visit!!

"Last stop in the City of Buffalo"

Niagara Ave is the last stop in the city of Buffalo if you go any further than that you will be in lake Erie literally. Niagara ave lead you from downtown Buffalo right to the town of Tonawanda and the City of Niagara Falls. You can take Niagara Ave to the boat docks where the waterfront park is in Buffalo or Niagara Ave will lead you to the Peace Bridge which connect Buffalo with Canada. As you move along Niagara there is a lot of factories and industrial plants. Niagara Ave is not a place I recommend for a family to visit but if your looking for work you might find it on Niagara Ave.
