Buy into Buffalo: New Era Caps

What would a holiday gift list be without an item from New Era on it? The best part of purchasing a hat from New Era is getting to visit the company’s flagship store in Downtown Buffalo. Walls and walls of caps and hats can be found, but if you truly want to buy a cap made right here in Buffalo then be sure to ask for ‘a local’, as not all of them are manufactured here. I snapped a photo of a couple of the designs that are manufactured in Western New York (see first row).

The 59Fifty caps seen here, and made here, retail for $34.99, and though the styles do change often, there are always plenty to choose from. The New Era cap is #14 on the BRO holiday gift list. Click here to follow the gift trail. When visiting New Era on Delaware, be sure to grab a lunch around the corner at one of the many restaurants and cafes, including Spot Coffee, Papaya, Salsarita’s, Chocolate Bar and Emerson Commons Food Court.

RaChaCha is a Garbage Plate™ kid making his way in a Chicken Wing world. Since 2008, he's put over a hundred articles on here, and he asked us to be sure to thank you for reading. So, thank you for reading. You may also have seen his freelance byline in Artvoice, where he writes under the name his daddy gave him [Ed: Send me a check, and I might reveal what that is]. When he's not writing, RaChaCha is an urban planner, a rehabber of houses, and a community builder. He co-founded the Buffalo Mass Mob, and would love to see you at the next one. He represents Buffalo Young Preservationists on the Trico roundtable. If you try to demolish a historic building, he might have something to say about that. He is a proud AmeriCorps alum.

Things you may not know about RaChaCha (unless you read this before): "Ra Cha Cha" is a nickname of his hometown. (Didn't you know that? Do you live under a rock?) He's a political junkie (he once worked for the president of the Monroe County Legislature), but we don't really let him write about politics on here. He helped create a major greenway in the Genesee Valley, and worked on early planning for the Canalway Trail. He hopes you enjoy biking and hiking on those because that's what he put in all that work for. He was a ringleader of the legendary "Chill the Fill" campaign to save Rochester's old downtown subway tunnel. In fact, he comes from a long line of troublemakers. An ancestor fought at Bunker Hill, and a relative led the Bear Flag Revolt in California. We advise you to remember this before messing with him in the comments. He worked on planning the Rochester ARTWalk, and thinks Buffalo should have one of those, too (write your congressman).

You can also find RaChaCha (all too often, we frequently nag him) on the Twitters at @HeyRaChaCha. Which is what some people here yell when they see him on the street. You know who you are.
