This post currently has no comments.

By Laura Kirkpatrick

This summer, so far, has been pivotal for Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. Perkins+Will have done a stellar job in a short amount of time meshing the hopes of Buffalonians with the needs of the ECHDC. But the focus on the Outer Harbor has been long-running, and for students of Professor Sean Burkholder at UB’s School of Architecture and Planning, it culminated last spring. Burkholder challenged his students to create park-first land use visions for Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. The assignment asked the students to Read moreRead more

Dog Days of Summer Concert at Sportsmens to Benefit Pet Emergency Fund

This post currently has no comments.

Some summer nights, it seems the entire community is outdoors with music in the air, which is wonderful…unless your business depends on people gathering indoors. In effort to beat back these “dog days” at indoor concert venues and support a dog-related cause in the process, a tenured team of Buffalo musicians who care about both are gathering for an indoor-outdoor benefit at one of their favorite places to play, the Sportsmens Tavern.

My love and understanding of Buffalo is greatly informed by my love of bicycling.

When I was a kid, after learning how to ride a bike in Western New York’s most densely populated square mile of Kenmore, I’d spend entire days biking the Niagara Riverwalk section of the Erie Canalway Trail, from my grandmother’s home in the Marine Drive towers beside Erie Basin Marina to Nia-Wanda Park and Old Man River in Tonawanda, enjoying the scenic Niagara River and Canadian shoreline while observing how the Niagara Thruway (I-190) so terribly separated West Side neighborhoods from our waterfront.

Words, photo and video by Seamus Gallivan

Goodness gracious, our weekly dual band encores at Live at Larkin have been a blast! Here are videos of the past three for anyone who’s missed them or would like to relive the “magic” - official term explained below. The first is the most recent, when Jony James Band and Dive House Union united to create what in my opinion was the greatest musical moment in Larkin Square history to date, and certainly the loudest ovation we’ve heard there.  Read moreRead more

This past Thursday, the Larkin Market got off to a glorious start as thousands of attendees took part in “social shopping” with some 65 varied vendors, from farmed and prepared foods to many forms of handcrafted goods (Buffalo News photo gallery here). While each Thursday in Larkin Square (745 Seneca St., Larkinville, 4-7:30pm, free) will offer light live music to help set the vibe – last week we had sounds from guitar, sitar, gyil (West African xylophone), and steel drums – some weeks will include even more for the attendees to enjoy, such as this week’s visit from Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper (BNR), Read moreRead more
