CITY DESK: 'The Grand Lady' of the Falls

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — They saved it from a wrecking ball once and convinced a governor to invest $500,000 in state money to better preserve it for years to come.

Thanks to them, the old Niagara Falls High School still stands, as classic and classy as ever. It sits on a strong foundation, built by local people who understand the value of hard work, commitment to community, the spirit of cooperation and volunteerism - all things needed to make desperate places like Niagara Falls just that little bit better. 

“The Grand Lady.” 

She’s one tough, Niagara Falls dame — a real testament to the old saying “they just don’t make ‘em like they used to.”
