Buffalo partners with Nextdoor.com


BUFFALO, NY - The City of Buffalo is teaming up with a popular app to help make neighborhoods safer. Mayor Byron Brown announced a partnership Thursday with Nextdoor.com, a website and app that creates private social networks for each neighborhood.

Brown says it will help neighborhoods communicate better about safety issues and make it easier for the city and police department to reach out to them as well.

The Sacramento Police Department credits the social media tool with a double-digit decrease in crime, the mayor said.

The system is already online and Mayor Brown says 2,000 Buffalo residents have signed up.

More than 100,000 Expected For Garth Brooks Concerts


Buffalo, NY - Plenty of people will be coming to downtown Buffalo over the next few nights to see country superstar Garth Brooks in concert, but there are some words of advice for those attending the mostly sold-out shows.

It was a quiet Wednesday at the First Niagara Center, which is perhaps the clam before the storm as people still buy scattered available tickets to see Garth Brooks in concert.

As Jason Gaery of Hamburg put it after buying a ticket "He's a great performer. He's great...energetic and fun with the crowd."

Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium at Buffalo State Resumes Programming

Thanks to the continued generosity of the Whitworth and Dorothy Ferguson Foundation, the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium at Buffalo State will resume public programming on Friday, March 6, after a two-year hiatus.

The planetarium, which temporarily closed in January 2013 to accommodate construction of Buffalo State’s $100 million Science and Mathematics Complex, will set up operations in Buckham Hall for the next four years inside a new inflatable planetarium with a state-of-the-art projector system. The Whitworth and Dorothy Ferguson Foundation funded the inflatable planetarium project—which is only slightly smaller than the former physical planetarium.
