The chapter currently being written in
the book of Buffalo’s history is one of rebirth.
Throughout the city, restoration and reuse
projects are proving that the skeletons of our
past can be refleshed. A closer look reveals
similar efforts at work outside the city as
well. In Depew, Lisa and Peter Florczak,
owners and operators of Water Bikes of Buffalo at Canalside, have polished a diamond-in-the-rough former VFW hall, and converted
it to a warehouse and shipping center, as well
a modern home for their family of four.
