Michigan to Ganson st. Bridge

In years past, the Michigan Street bridge that leads to Buffalo Riverworks had been obliterated while their crew were throwing back a few at the Swanee House Pub, (still in operation today) two rogue ships (the Tewksbury and the MacGilvray Shiras) both longer than a football field were swept down the Buffalo River from their docking ports. An unexpected ice jam breakage was to blame. Both ships slammed into the Michigan/Ganson Street bridge with a force of untold porportions. This incident also flooded a significant area inside the shoreline. Some of the buildings today are constructed higher up than usual to prevent any future flood damage.

      Docked the boat at Riverworks after a morning on the lake. Had a few brews and some buffalo chicken wings. It was a blast. Going to do it again soon once the weather breaks. Maybe stop by for the Music is Art Festival.
