Spectator reporter Amy Kenny and photographer John Rennison recently spent ten days traveling to nearby Rust Belt cities to see what they could come away with. Hamilton is a city that is searching for new ways to diversify and reinvent itself. The city has the bones to do it, just as Buffalo does. During their trip to Buffalo, I was fortunate to be able to tour the pair around.
We started on the West Side of the city, and ended up down at the waterfront. After the tour was over, Amy and John turned to me and stated that they were both impressed at how far Buffalo had come. Until the trip to Buffalo, they shared the same belief that this city was still wallowing around in its Rust Belt misery. You can read about their adventures in a week-long The Spectator series that appears in print and online.
