Icebreaking the Buffalo River on Buffalo’s historic fireboat and icebreaker, the Edward M. Cotter

On February 23, 2011 I had the pleasure of being invited to participate on a working trip up the Buffalo River onboard the historic Edward M. Cotter.

This video reveals a winters day on the Buffalo River as we leave the Cotter’s home dock at Ohio and Michigan, and travel through Elevator Alley, past River Jacket Front Park, and up to the South Park Avenue bridge and current site of Solar City.  Enjoy this 10 minute video.
