Revitalization

012

A local suburb has transformed a little segment of the Erie Canal from warehouses and a coal tower into a tony shopping and eating destination.

008

It's truly picturesque, and part of its charm is that some of the buildings still look like this.

The tall building below has been transformed into office space, and the glass elevator is quite impressive looking.

The Erie Canal is a noted cycling/walking/paddling/boating attraction as well.

016

I highly recommend an evening stroll along the canal. For restaurant and retail recommendations (including a good bike shop!), check it out at RocWiki.

My favorite aspect is that you can easily bike to it. Even when the boys were much younger, we would start someplace doable like Perinton Park and bike there for ice cream. It is a treasure!
