Buffalo New York’s waterfront Renaissance is in full progress, and it’s alive and ready to be enjoyed. It’s a great time to explore, discover, and be an active part of the amazing advances the waterfront has achieved to date. Over, on, or under the water, there is something for everyone to love.
So, whether your passion is the wind and the mist at full sail, or gently paddling a kayak past our
historic concrete castles.
Enjoying a quiet meal beside our glorious sunsets, or head-banging at a concert at Canalside.
Relaxing as you view our city from a tall ship, or shaking your hips at a heart-pumping Zumba party.
Biking, fishing, SCUBA, rowing, bird watching, swimming, taking in a history tour, or simply
watching other peoples boats float by, the list is seemingly endless.
This book is our humble attempt to capture where the waterfront has been, and where it is today.
The best chapters are yet to be written.
