Buffalo Water Renaissance

 

 

Buffalo Water Renaissance

Water has defined Buffalo over the last two hundred years. Water helped build Buffalo into a shipping hub in the 1800’s and a manufacturing powerhouse in the 1900’s. Most of those industries are long gone but their legacy along the waterways of Western New York is not. Many water related issues face Buffalo today, industrial clean up, environmental restoration, and public access are only a few. But if handled correctly, water can be one of the keys to Buffalo’s future.

After watching A Trip up the Buffalo River with Captain Tom Marks discuss the concept of “renaissance” with students. Renaissance means rebirth and renewal.  The most famous renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th to the 17th century, beginning in Italy and later spreading to the rest of Europe.


1.    What does it mean for Buffalo’s water to go through a “renaissance?”
2.    What ideas do the student’s have for the future of the Buffalo waterfront?
3.    Create a work of art, poem or song based on the rebirth of Buffalo’s water.
