See also: Niagara Falls (disambiguation). Niagara is a town in Niagara County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, the town had a total population of 8,378. The town is named after the famous waterfall Niagara Falls. The Town of Niagara is the neighbor to the City of Niagara Falls, which is next to the famed Niagara Falls. The town is located in the southwest corner of the county. Since the late 20th century, it has been known for its factory-outlet mall (formerly Prime Outlet Niagara Falls), and is frequently visited by nearby Canadians based on the favorable currency exchange. Also located within the town is Niagara Falls International Airport, which serves the Niagara County area. It is served by the LaSalle Post Office on Niagara Falls Boulevard (U.S. Route 62) in adjacent Niagara Falls, New York. Residents use a mailing address of "Niagara Falls, NY" because of this. Neither "Niagara, NY," nor "Town of Niagara, NY" are acceptable postal addresses, according to the United States Postal Service.
