Kids Encyclopedia Facts

North End is a neighborhood in Niagara Falls, New York.

Geography

The North End neighborhood extends along Highland Avenue.

History

The North End, like Little Italy, has declined significantly over the years. Originally a booming industrial district, predominantly Polish and German, since the 1940s the areas surrounding Highland Avenue have been predominantly African-American, several of the industries have closed and the area has become neglected.

The relocation of the Niagara Falls Amtrak station is expected to help the area, as well as new development on nearby Main Street.
