adverbs & adjectives

called the falls Niagara: ''Niagara'' is a noun here and not an adjective, right?

 

So it is very noisy near the Falls. ''So'' here is a conjunction and not an adverb, right?  As for the phrase ''near the Falls'', isn't it so that this is a prepositional phrase? ''Near '' is not an adverb in this case, isn't that so?

Niagara Falls is a proper noun.

 

So, it is very noisy near the Falls.

Since you've capitalized 'Falls', this is a familiar shortening of the proper noun. 'Near' is a preposition in this usage.
