It’s pretty awesome to see what’s taking place on Niagara Street at the moment. From the installation of dedicated bike lanes, the application of public art, the new businesses, the camaraderie, the green infrastructure. Just the other day, an announcement was made that the business community would be celebrating the ongoing successes by hosting a Fall Fest Market, which is the first of its kind.
To get a better handle on the history of this evolving district, and where it is heading, Vision Niagara is hosting a Niagara Street History Tour by Bike on Saturday, September 9, from 11am to 1pm. The 2-miles, 1 1/2-hour ride will extend through Upper Black Rock, and will provide a unique insight into this most fascinating neighborhood.
“Vision Niagara is excited to offer a tour focusing on Niagara Street’s remarkable history and resurgence led by Chris Hawley and Kerry Traynor. I doubt that you could find tour leaders more knowledgeable about the cultural and industrial heritage of this area. It will be a fascinating window into Upper Rock’s role in Buffalo’s story.” – Vision Niagara
Participants will gather at Twin Petrels after the tour, to socialize, eat and drink, and share their own stories and commentaries.
