As another tourist season approaches, the New York State Parks Office is trying to fine tune a sale pitch explaining to some eight million annual visitors why the American side viewing area of the Horseshoe Falls is off limits.
Terrapin Point, located at the western end of Goat Island, has been cordoned off with chained link fence barricading visitors from the vista of the Falls and Lower Gorge.
The Parks is four years into a $50 million rehab project which includes renovations on Goat Island. At first glance, the project shows progress through the past winter. While numerous construction efforts on the Niagara Frontier have moved forward during the off season, the LiRo Group, prime contractor of the project, has little to show.
