SARASOTA, FL - FEBRUARY 15: Nik Wallenda poses for a photograph with a piece of the high wire he used to walk over Niagara Falls on at Circus Sarasota on February 15, 2013 in Sarasota, Florida. Wallenda is planning to walk on a high wire over the Grand Canyon this summer.
It's really exciting. I think what we're bringing, our subtle changes this year - in the way of our Wi-Fi and a lot of great food and programming that's happening - It's just a nice buzz we have here in downtown Niagara Falls ... All of our collaborators are really working together to make something festive and fun, that's even our tagline - food, festivals and fun.
The removal and replacement of this stretch of the Robert Moses Parkway will reconnect downtown Niagara Falls to the upper Niagara River, opening up access to the river's edge and making it more valuable for development. This plan will revitalize the city and is a nod to Olmsted's original vision for the Niagara Falls.
The Robert Moses Parkway is an outdated impediment to the growth of the City of Niagara Falls, as well as tourism opportunities in the city's urban core ... I am pleased that New York State, through the Buffalo Billion initiative, is continuing to invest state resources to leverage tens of millions of dollars in private investment to boost the economy and create jobs. This public infrastructure investment will help the city's tourism business by routing traffic through the city instead of bypassing it.More quotes »
