Buffalo is in the Washington Post‘s travel section. Writer Melanie Kaplan spent four days in the city exploring Larkinville, the Buffalo River and Canalside.
By foot, kayak and bike, she came away with a different perspective from the one that was ingrained in her mind and body.
Although Melanie is familiar with Upstate and its winters (Washingtonian schooled in Syracuse), this was a chance for her to experience Buffalo in a way that will hopefully captivate others to make a similar trek to the City of Trees, The Emerald City (Olmsted), the City of Good Neighbors, The City of Light, and the Queen City on the Lake.
It’s interesting to think how many students spend their time in Upstate NY during the cold months, and never get a chance to see these cities when they come to life in the spring… they arrive in the fall and then leave shortly after the snow melts.
How many students walk away from Buffalo after they graduate, only to remember the colder months? The thousands of emissaries typically have one account of their host city, and that’s unfortunate.
Buffalo’s four seasons is one of the reasons that I love living here. If my only interaction with Buffalo was during the winter, then my take on the region would be distorted as well.
