The Council adopted a resolution sponsored by Council President and Lovejoy District Council Member Richard A. Fontana requesting that no products containing Bisphenol A ("BPA") be sold or distributed within the City of Buffalo. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been present in many hard plastic bottles and metal-based food and beverage cans since the 1960s. In September 2008, the National Toxicology Program found that BPA at current human exposure levels may be toxic to and negatively affect the brain, behavior
When the ECHDC builds the extended faux canal in time for ice skating next winter, I would imagine that the ice conditions would be very similar to the conditions seen in this photo.
Wise's journey to 464 actually began well before he bought the space. It started with his website,
The number of churches that have been forced to close their doors in recent years has been staggering. However, there have been some rare cases where churches have been able to reinvest in their historic properties and find a new life. Holy Angels Church at 348 Porter Avenue is one of those rare examples.
Built in 1856, the Roman Catholic Church has been in constant use since it was completed. The congregation was founded in 1851 by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. They began

Last week I wrote about simple solutions that could improve Buffalo's public transit system. This week, I would like to present a bold idea.
In my opinion, Buffalo's Metro Rail is a mass transit success story. It has the NFTA's highest ridership and represents a fifth of the NFTA's total daily ridership. It is also fast and follows a direct route between several of the city's major destinations. It is also the least subsidized and most cost-effect component of NFTA's transit system and attracts a substantial share of discretionary riders
The architectural firm responsible for Baltimore's Inner Harbor will design Buffalo's Choice Neighborhood plan Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority officials said Monday.
The $624,000 contract will result in a dramatic remaking and revitalization of the Commodore Perry public housing neighborhood by Philadelphia-based Wallace, Roberts & Todd (WRT). The BMHA Perry Choice neighborhood is bounded by South Park on the south, Smith Street to the east, Sycamore to the north and Michigan Avenue to the

We are Occupy Western New York, we began in late December when a number of Occupy Buffalo protesters moved to Lafayette Square and were raided 5 days later.
We decided it was best to move into the new phase of the Occupy movement and began occupying abandoned homes and foreclosed properties as a realistic way of addressing the WNY housing crisis. Some of us just returned from Niagara Square where they recently raided the camp with dozens of police officers and took everything
I really had decent expectations going into Superbowl XLVI as a Bills fan willing to cheer for the Giants as my adopted, second favorite, home-away-from home team. Sure it was the lesser of two evils to cheer for the Giants, especially after last week's Brady hotel comment debacle, but I also have a strong base of NYC friends who are born and raised Giants fans. I wanted to see what a city post-superbowl victory would be like, and I wanted to see my NYC friends in, what I had hoped would be, rare form. In what may potentially be a more isolated
According to a recent /city/index.html
There are no clues - just a photo depicting the item. I'm sure that there are a lot of BRO readers out there who have scoured the city and have seen just about all that there is to see. Others might learn about some real treasures found in the most unlikely places. Either way, I'll keep mixing it up from week to week to keep you guessing...
I have long touted the sports strategy that Indianapolis used to revitalize its downtown as a model for cities to follow in terms of strategy led economic and community development. I really think it sets the benchmark in terms of how to do it, and it has been very successful.
Indy is hosting the Super Bowl on Sunday, something that is locally seen as a sort of crowning achievement of the 40 year sports journey. As part of that, the Indianapolis Star and public TV station WFYI produced an hour long documentary on the journey called "Naptown to Super City." I think it's a must watch for
