The Buffalo Zoo
Founded in 1875, the Buffalo Zoo, located at 300 Parkside Ave in Buffalo, New York, is the third oldest zoo in the United States. Each year the Buffalo Zoo welcomes approximately 400,000 visitors and is the second largest tourist attraction in Western New York, second only Niagara Falls. It is also the new home of “Luna” the Polar Bear!
This would be a wonderful place for President Obama to connect with middle class families.
The Anchor Bar
Located on Main Street The Anchor Bar is home of the original Buffalo wing. President Obama visited Duff’s last time he was in Buffalo, but now it’s time for him to taste the “Original”!
One night back on March 4,1964,Dominic Bellissimo group of his friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat. She decided to deep fried the wings and flavor them with a secret sauce.
The wings were an instant hit and it didn’t take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar.
MLK Park Splashpad
This May the City of Buffalo opened up the largest splash pad in New York State. The new water basin located in MLK Jr. park features 300 water fountains with 15-foot-high water sprays to play in during the summer. In the winter, the shallow water will freeze up to create an ice rink!
This is my personal pick! I’d love to see the POTUS in his swimming trunks out there playing with the kids in the community!
Niagara Falls is one of the 8 wonders world located just outside of Buffalo. Although WNY is proud of this landmark the city of Niagara Falls has struggled with high levels of unemployment and crime in the past few years. This is in stark contrast to the Canadian side of the boarder which is a hub of tourism complete with a Ripplies believe or not, Hard Rock Café, and many other attractions. Hopefully if President Obama visited he would see the need to send some dollars the way of Niagara Falls, NY, USA and make it more attractive for tourists to stay and play!
The 376-acre Delaware park has a two mile track, basketball and tennis courts, and soccer and baseball fields.
A few WBLK Listeners volunteered to put together a 3 on 3 game for the President to play against some of the ballers in the community!
