Audio: Niagara’s Downs thinks tourism can spread

The recent grand opening of the Niagara Global Tourism Institute in Downtown Niagara Falls has many thinking about better ways to use tourism to spread the wealth throughout Niagara County.

That institute’s headquarters is located in the historic Power City Building at the corner of Third and Old Falls streets.

Dr. Tim Downs said it’s a matter of figuring out what can be done.

An initial, $50,000 study was funded by the support of New York state through the USA Niagara Development Corp.

Niagara University then matched a $250,000 New York Power Authority funding award to establish the institute.
