BUFFALO, NY-- No doubt many of you have been down to Canalside to enjoy a concert or to walk along the Naval and Servicemans Park and the newly restored Commercial Slip.
That's arguable the best view of Lake Erie. But if you continue walking about a mile up the Buffalo River, you'll end up in the place where the City of Buffalo started.
"The earliest history of the city you can find right here," said Gene Overdorf, tour guide for "Historic Buffalo Waterfront Tours.
The tours start at the recently dedicated Mutual Riverfront Park on the Buffalo River about a mile upstream from Canalside, right at the intersection of Hamburg and South Street, in Buffalo's historic Old First Ward neighborhood.
