5K (or 5 kilometer) runs are pretty frequent
Some things are better left unsaid, but then you wouldn't know about them, right? For the past five years I have been releasing a new local history book every other year. First there was "Through the Mayors' Eyes," then "Nine Nine Eight: The Glory Days of Buffalo Shopping," and last fall I released "They Call Me Korney: The True Story of Buffalo's Korney Gang."

Form follows function, right? If you build it they will come, but if you build what they want, they will keep coming! So, is it green, sports, BBQ, history, playgrounds, museums...?

South Buffalo has a rich and diverse history, with Buffum Street - and what may be the oldest home in South Buffalo - playing a large part in it.
The history of what is now Buffum Street dates back to the 17th century, when the Senecas took over the land surrounding the street from the Kah - Kwah tribe. The area eventually became known as the Buffalo Creek Indian Reservation, and the corner of Buffum Street and Fields Avenue still holds the remnants of a Native American burial ground, now a memorial park.

After nearly ten years of study, site shifts, and lease negotiations, Bass Pro has dumped plans to open a store on the waterfront.
