Archway planned for Michigan Street corridor


BUFFALO, N.Y.- Plans are being made to enhance the look of Buffalo's historic Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor.

Supporters of the project held a public meeting Tuesday night to hear ideas on how to renovate the neighborhood.

Planned features for the neighborhood include an archway at the entrance to the neighborhood and several art displays to help tell the story of the neighborhood's history.

"This is the place where all of the leadership mostly from the African American community has emerged in the city. The other thing is that was the heartbeat of Buffalo in its hey day," James Pitts, coordinator for the Nash Interpretive Center said.

Representatives from the city engineering department were at the meeting to hear input on how to incorporate the design. The group is asking for the city to fund the project.
