Summary:
Buffalo, New York is a place that has seen its share of adversity. But in recent years the city has experienced a major cultural and economic revival. In Not Just Snow and Chicken Wings, author Jeff Dahlberg explores five positive stories about Buffalo's renaissance. Buffalo's football fans will enjoy reading about how Buffalo managed to keep the Bills in town after team owner Ralph Wilson passed away. Sabres fans will treasure the tale of how the Blue and Gold tanked to draft Jack Eichel. Canalside visitors can learn why the Erie Canal's western terminus didn't become bulldozed and replaced by a replica. If you appreciate Buffalo's wealth of architecture, you'll find out how preservationists and developers saved many of these landmarks. Buffalo used to be a good city to be from, but not a good place to stay. Now SolarCity, IBM, the Medical Campus and HarborCenter have remade the city's economy and culture.
