New York – Buffalo/Niagara Falls

It had been about 30 years since I visited Buffalo and Niagara Falls.  In 2014, I went back….       (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo,_New_York & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niagara_Falls)

In Buffalo, I stayed in a neighborhood of nice older houses…

The waterfront had a bunch of cool statues carved from wood.  Artists carved the statues of local historical figures from trees that fell during the big October, 2006 storm.

The man on the right is Frederick Law Olmsted, an architect.   His statue was carved from a 100 year old Silver Maple tree.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Law_Olmsted)

I also visited Niagara Falls on the NY side.  Even though people told me that these were not as beautiful as from Canada, I thought they were pretty impressive!    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrapin_Point)
