There are two Niagra Falls. One is in the Southern-Eastern portion of the Canadian province of Ontario and the Other is in the Northern-Western portion of the US state of New York. They are both the same place but there are two sections of the falls. One in Canada and one in America. The name is also used for two townships one in Canada and the other in America. The most commonly seen (on TV) falls in the Canadian falls, also called the Horseshoe falls due to its shape. The American falls is known as the "straight falls" due to its shape. There is also a bit of other info but I am not sure is relevant or not-the falls are divided by Goat Island into the American Falls, 167ft high, and the Canadian, or Horseshoe, Falls, 158ft high.
