Grisanti Bill to Reclassify Buffalo River as Inland Waterway Passes Senate

Grisanti Bill to Reclassify Buffalo River as Inland Waterway Passes Senate

Senator Mark Grisanti (R-60) today announced passage in the New York Senate of his bill S-6646 that amends the executive law to make the Buffalo River classified an inland waterway paving the way for the application of federal funds to assist with the restoration and protection of the river.

The Buffalo River is the river that empties into the eastern end of Lake Erie between the United States Coast Guard Station and the Erie Basin Marina.  It is the Buffalo Creek until it reaches the western border of the Town of West Seneca as it receives the contents of the Cayuga and Cazenovia Creeks.  The Buffalo Harbor includes a series of federal navigation channels designed so that deep-draft commercial vessels can safely navigate the harbor.

High-Wire Expert Nik Wallenda to Train at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel

High-Wire Expert Nik Wallenda to Train at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel

The world waits in anticipation for Nik Wallenda to accomplish a childhood dream this June: walk over the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls on a high-wire.  Although the “King of the High Wire” holds a Guinness World Record and comes from a seven-generation circus dynasty, he needs to prepare.  That preparation will take place May 12 to 22 at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel – Wallenda’s home base in Niagara Falls and a major sponsor of the high-wire walk.

The public is invited to watch Wallenda train for free each day from 10:30 a.m. to noon and 3:30 to 5 p.m. in front of the property near Third Street and Old Falls Street.  Two cranes – with the reinforcement of stanchions drilled 15 feet into the ground – will support a 1,200-foot long wire that will span the outdoor parking lot and be exactly like the one Wallenda will walk on June 15 – but this practice wire will be placed a reasonable height above the ground.
