Personal Safety, Niagara Falls
i live in niagara falls but actually in a good neighborhood. 1/5 nieghboorhoods are good in the falls. but i know all about highland and hyde park and downtown and lasalle its not as bad during the day but i dont recomend being those parts around after 12 and your a tourist, bad stuff might happen.
Less than a mile from the falls is a really bad neighborhood...really bad, make sure you know where you are going and where your hotel is. We made a wrong turn and wound up in a dangerous situation...be aware of your surroundings...find lodging on the Canadian side.
If you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls then you need to know about it. The canadian side is touristy while the New York side is a ghetto. Go ahead and visit us but the most dangerous street in the city is Highland ave as well as the intersection at Pierce and 18th street. But don't worry because you can get a safe hotel on Niagar Falls Boulevard between 54th and 101st. And go to the new casino on the American side called Seneca Niagara. Don't worry about your car there is 24 hour police patrol now.
Beware of falling rocks from the cliff face at Niagara Glen. We passed these rocks on our way back up the path, they weren't there when we had gone down.
