America’s Crossroads: Buffalo’s Canal Street/Dante – Place The Making of a City
 America’s Crossroads: Buffalo’s Canal Street/Dante – Place The Making of a City
Michael Vogel, Edward Patton, Paul Redding
The trio of authors dug up some of the most boisterous events in which occurred at our waterfront and published them in this one of a kind book. The history of the Canal District/Dante Place has literally been buried under the Marine Drive Apartments. Murders, scandal, prostitution, boot-legging, gambling, saloons, unsanitary tenement life, and immigration is the true history of that property which is all documented in American Crossroads. The encounters are not the most honorable, but it is the history of when Buffalo was put on the map and was a thriving industrial city.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 Buffalos!
