Buffalo’s waterfront

Buffalo, New York has four times the population of Saint John (and an urban area only one third the size). However, the city had industrial roots similar to those of Saint John and once faced similar challenges. Buffalo has since reinvented itself through  investments in the educational and medical sectors.

As in Saint John, Buffalo’s waterfront is an important part of the urban landscape. Buffalo is now launching an initiative to re-vision its waterfront based on public engagement and the use of prompt, low-cost improvements. See link. It’s an interesting approach to place-making, and something to keep an eye on.
