Thanks to Higgins, we can enjoy an active waterfront

I recently visited Buffalo’s Outer Harbor marina and was very impressed with the progress that has been made there. In fact, the contrast to only a few short years ago is amazing.

New state parkland, playgrounds, boat launches, Wilkeson Pointe Park, Gallagher Beach and the Tifft Nature Preserve are all great complements to the new waterfront experience in Buffalo.

I remember Congressman Brian Higgins fighting for many years to get the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority to give up the waterfront land. Now I know why he was so passionate and determined. Higgins’ vision and willingness to fight have created new opportunities for everyone to enjoy the waterfront experience that had been denied people for decades.
