Celebrating 10 years of Canalside

Officials celebrate the successes on the waterfront and also look forward to what's ahead.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- It's now been a decade since Canalside opened to the public in the late Spring of 2008, and the waterfront transformation continues.

2 On Your Side spoke with Tom Dee, president of the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, and Rep. Brian Higgins (D-Buffalo). Both men have played key roles in the development.

The majority of the $155.2 million earmarked for waterfront development through a settlement with NYPA is still available.
