Niagara's Forgotten Dream

Canadian photojournalist Michelle Siu has done a series on the people and places in Niagara Falls, NY., a city where the American dream broke.

The contrast is stark. On the American side of the Falls, the median income is $30,000-- 40 percent below national average and 1/5 live below the poverty line. Just across the river their Canadian counterpart’s bright lights – its hotels, casino and prosperity-- shines, a symbol to the New York side of its own unrealized economic potential.
