Disagree.

There are the 3 main HECFI venues (Hamilton Place, Copps Coliseum, the Convention Centre) , numerous other theatres ( Aquarius, Staircase, Hamilton Conservatory For The Arts, Hamilton theatre Inc., Citadel, Artword Artbar, etc.), countless art studios, monthly art crawls, live music clubs (Absinthe, This Ain't Hollywood, The Casbah), about 200 restaurants, coffee shops, Bulldogs hockey, the strip along King William St., the waterfront has skating (ice in the winter, roller in warm months), restaurants. That's just off the top of my head.

None of these are Hess Village nor Augusta Street.

Niagara Falls is different because it is a tourist destination. Hamilton is not, nor will it be with a casino. The province will be putting casinos everywhere so Hamilton's would be dependent on locals who's money will be sucked out the local economy by the black hole where it otherwise would have been spent at local businesses.
