Prospect Point Viewing Area
Niagara in Winter
In the past, the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls were frequently reduced to a trickle when ice jammed up in the American Rapids. A few times both falls completely froze over! Since 1964, the installation of the ice boom, a barrier laid across Lake Erie, slows the amount of ice flowing down the falls.
