Buffalo, N.Y. - If you're looking for some prime waterfront land in Buffalo, the NFTA may have a deal for you.
The NFTA is putting up for sale the Small Boat Harbor and a 60 acre piece of vacant property adjacent to it that contain two warehouses.
The reason - over the coming years, the Authority estimates it would need to spend as much as $50 million on improvements and upkeep.
Now if it seems like the NFTA has owned waterfront land forever, there's a good reason.
The City of Buffalo deeded the Outer Harbor land to what was then the "Niagara Frontier Port Authority" 55 years ago when the area was looking to expand its bustling port and shipping business.
That business was crippled by the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway, but the NFTA held on to the land for all these years and did very little with it.
Scott Brown: "Do you think the NFTA owes an apology to the community for not doing more with that property over the years?"
