“Upstate, NY”

The picture at left – showing the Tonawandas, on Upstate NY’s Niagara Frontier — makes for interesting “reading” for any executive responsible for locating a new plant or distribution point.

Transportation is fast and economical. Here the New York State Barge Canal (center) joins the Niagara River, which gives easy access to the Great Lakes and the new Seaway. Railroads and the superb New York State Thruway offer added shipping flexibility. Across the river is a great market — Canada.

And all along the Frontier are thriving, remarkably diversified industries, manned by a large force of skilled and unskilled labor… an powered by low-cost, dependable Niagara Mohawk electricity. We’d like to send you our booklet, telling more about the Niagara Frontier… and all of Upstate, NY. Just write Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, Dept. US-28, Syracuse, NY.

The New York State Thruway flows through the heart of the Niagara Mohawk System, which extends from the Niagara Frontier across the state to the Hudson River.
