It is the neck through which 4 of the 5 Great Lakes drain. It is a national border. It is a mighty, rushing strait with the spectacular Niagara Falls. It is an internationally esteemed bird migration corridor. It is a renowned fishery. In the scope of history, it is a young river scourged by the latest ice age 12,000 years ago. It is the Niagara River. Under the relentless, monumental force of falling water, Niagara Falls gnawed its way through the ancient Niagara Escarpment and eroded upriver 7 miles in the last 12,000 years. –Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper

Niagara River socks are knit from cuff to toe with a wavy stitch in a deep blue representing the flow of the great river.
