Niagara Street was for many years one of Buffalo's major industrial corridors. Factories located along Niagara Street produced everything from automobiles to skincare products. One of Joseph Ellicott's original radial streets, Niagara Street runs parallel to the Niagara River, railroad tracks, and the former Erie Canal route (now the I-190 expressway) and connected the early villages of Buffalo and Black Rock. Today, many of the factories and warehouses are being converted into apartments featuring Niagara River views. On this walking tour, learn about the street's industrial past while seeing the dramatic transformation of many of Niagara Street's historic buildings.
