Sitting Pretty at the Outer Harbor

Find a seat — there are plenty at Wilkeson Pointe on Buffalo's Outer Harbor. More than 350 seats, in fact, clustered in some 50 locations along the nearly 3-mile stretch.
Make your way to the park on Buffalo's second waterfront, and you can take your pick among low-riding tandem chairs, branch-and-bark Adirondack swings and stone or wooden benches. Or you can sit on Italian marble and pieces of pillars that frame the walkways – remnants of buildings once dumped along the lakefront for erosion control.
This is the second summer for expanded seating on the Outer Harbor, and little by little, the goal of narrowing the gulf between the once-industrial graveyard and visitor-busy Canalside seems on its way.
