North America's most powerful water falls- the Niagara is actually a collection of three falls . The Horseshoe Falls, The American falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The American falls between the Prospect Point and the Luna Island, the Bridal Veil Falls is between the Luna Island and the Goat Island and the Canadian/Horse Shoe Falls is between the Goat Island and the Table Rock.
The Niagara itself is a river of about 12,000 years. There were Ice-sheets of 2-3 kilometers thick in southern Ontario 18000 years ago. Along the ages and after certain topographical changes ice-sheets melted and accumulated a lot of water in the Great Lakes Basin. Water from Lake Erie, the Niagara River and Lake Ontario all contribute to the falls. The second largest falls in the world is the Niagara Falls.
Each day per minute the Niagara throws water exceeding 6 million cubic feet. On an average the amount is 4 million cubic feet. Niagara is one of the chief sources of hydroelectric energy for the whole of New York and Ontario. Thus the falls helps in development of commerce and industry. But the state's revenue collection is also strengthened by the flourishing tourism industry.
