Hearts in the windows in Niagara Falls

The impressive waterfalls have brought tourists from around the world for a very long time, now due to the Covid-19 pandemic precautions, the city more resembles a ghost town. To bring cheer to visitors and locals, the hotels have been lighting up vacant rooms with lights that display large hearts on the buildings.
On the side of Embassy Suites the lights spell out HOPE. These are the hearts of hope that blaze out a message of solidarity that started with the staff of the Marriott Fallsview and spread throughout the hotels in the city. Not very many people are on hand lately to see that message as parks facilities and casinos are closed and large gatherings are prohibited.
Niagara Parks closed public facing operations on March 14. From the Niagara Parks website; "The closure extends to Niagara Parks attractions, restaurants, retail stores and golf courses, as well as the WEGO Green Line bus service and Falls Incline Railway. All public programming and events will also be suspended during this time. Recognizing that Niagara Parks offers many natural outdoor areas that will continue to draw guests, public washroom facilities will be remain open at Table Rock (outdoor only), Queen Victoria Place, Niagara Glen and Butterfly Café. These facilities will be cleaned regularly following the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene."
