Buffalo bringing new life to Canalside: Revitalization of Erie Canal launching tourism revolution, by Pat Brennan, Postmedia News in the Travel section of the National Post (February 25, 2016), will deliver little new to local folks.

Starting with Buffalo's transshipment history and segueing gracefully into the current revitalization, readers hear about Canalside and its relationship to both the Erie Canal and the Aud; HarborCenter, its special Tim Horton's and the Pegulas; the new Marriott; and RiverWorks. It even mentions the free train rides to and from downtown.
