Urban decay and crime in Niagara Falls, USA

Damn good youtube video of the deacy of Niagara Falls, USA. One of the comments says "The drive from Buffalo through Niagara Falls was like the grand tour of urban decay. Vacant hotels, boarded up restaurants, rusting factories...It really is like the town time forgot. It's sad, man." I don't get across the border much, looks like I'm not missing anything
