Yes, depending on how you went to the falls, you passed through Tonawanda.
The 290 goes through Tonawanda before merging with the 190 to go over Grand
Island to the falls.
But if you had instead taken the 190 towards Buffalo along the Niagara River
you would have passed by the GM Powertrain facility, still in Tonawanda, but
You would have missed it though, as most people are instead of looking at
the view along the river instead of towards the factory.
Yes it's still there, and still producing GM engines.

Hi all...My family took a long trip to Niagra Falls last month.? WHen I
on the map, I noticed that Tonawanda is on the way to the Falls, you pass it
route 290.

I didn't see anything that remotely resembled a Chevrolet engine assembly 
plant...and I don't know if it's even still there....but I'm curious if
know where the plant is/was located in the town?

Unfortunately no one in the car was really interested, and probably thought
excitement was a bit strange, but in character...
