Attention, Western New York- this is a battle cry of the utmost importance. Unless we start yelling, screaming and stomping our feet, Albany and the Empire State Development Corp. will forever bury the original Commercial Slip at this end of the Erie Canal.
Oh yes, they will erect a plaque over this buried site. Oh yes, they will dig some "new" slips. Oh yes, this will cost $27 million. What are they thinking? Well, I'm thinking let's raise a ruckus, put up a fuss and do it our way. Run down to this historic site and tell me it's not worth it.
