Group hopes to restore Humboldt Parkway


BUFFALO, NY - A group in Buffalo is hoping to bring about changes to the city's Humboldt Parkway neighborhood.

The Restore Our Community Coalition wants to restore the parkway that was destroyed to make way for the Kensington Expressway more than 60 years ago.

They say the restored road would serve as a gateway connecting the Humboldt Parkway community to Downtown and reconnect neighborhoods that were torn asunder when the highway cut right through their community.

The group is in the process of getting an environmental study done in that area and they're confident that funding for the project will be available in the near future.


Man says son fell into Buffalo sinkhole


BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo city street crews say they are in the process of covering a sinkhole that suddenly opened up on Sunday afternoon.

It happened on High Street near Rose Street around 4 p.m.

When we arrived at the scene a man told us his 20-year-old son actually fell into the hole as it opened under his feet and had to be taken to the hospital.

"I received a phone call from a friend of his and he said … they were walking down the street and he fell in the hole," the man told us. "When he said he fell in a hole I couldn't imagine that it looked like this, but, yeah, it's real. ... That hole is deep."

We've reached out to Buffalo Police for confirmation about the young man falling in but still have not heard back.

We do not know how serious his injuries are. Erie County Medical Center later told us he was discharged from their emergency room.
