Niagara Falls - NY

The next day, after the 'New York City' part, we took the morning train to Niagara Falls, by American Amtrak Train Services. Niagara Falls was around 600 kms from NYC and so, it took a while to reach Buffalo City and then Niagara Falls (passing by Poughkeepsie, Syracuse, Albany, et al). The train journey was good and relaxing, but considerably slow, when compared to the fast trains in Europe (like the German ICE, French TGV/Thalys, et al). We took this train, so as to relax a bit and also look at the nature, outside of New York City. After almost 8 & 1/2 hours of travelling, we finally reached 'Niagara Falls', checked in the hotel and walked around a bit, so as to check the falls, on the American side. It was a different feeling walking around the town, as it looked totally dead, as you see no people outside and the streets are pretty wide. This is how one feels, when they live in Europe or Asian countries and go to America. Here are some pics of Niagara Falls (on the American side), at night time:

Niagara Falls is one of the largest waterfall in the world, located both on the American side, as well as the Canadian side. Actually, it's said to be the second largest waterfall in the world and I ain't sure about that. It probably is, because its actually a set of 3 waterfalls, out of which, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are located on the American side and Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side. Around these falls, are the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario (Canadian side) and Niagara Falls, New York (American side). Buffalo is the nearest city to Niagara Falls on the American side and Toronto, on the Canadian side. Apart from this, Niagara Falls is on the Niagara river, which connects Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, which are 2 lakes in the set of 'Great Lakes' (consisting of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario').

The next day, we spend a lot of time looking at the Falls and all the things around that. It was nice to walk around and look at all the things, as the weather was great. Here are some pics:

After that, we also walked through the park, on the American side and also looked at the 'Three Sister Islands' and other things. Here's a video, that was shot around the 'Three Sister Islands':

That was it. The next day, we rented a car and drove back to New York City. It was nice driving through the NY and Pennsylvania country side and ultimately entering into Manhattan, looking at the Manhattan skyline, just after the sun set.
