City Hallways (Sept. 22) Where the buffalo roam

The mighty bison

The American bison was nearly extinct, but thanks to conservation efforts, the population is stable and now they're roaming all over Buffalo.

In statue form, that is.

They're everywhere. For instance, there's a small herd in LaSalle Park.

A lone buffalo on Seneca Street in South Buffalo welcomes people into the Seneca Babcock community.

And two are overlooking the 190 and Niagara River near the Peace Bridge.

Two bison statues overlook the 190 and the Niagara River.

But there's also a new herd of four on Niagara Street at the 190 exits.

They went up about a week before last month's Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade, say staffers in David A. Rivera's office. Rivera is the Niagara District representative on the Common Council.


Mark your calendars

The Police Oversight Committee will meet at 11 a.m on Tuesday in Council Chambers on the 13th floor.

The committee is the only real civilian oversight of the Buffalo Police.
