On Sunday, Sept. 17th, the students living in our St. Anthony Residence visited the waterfront in downtown Buffalo. The afternoon was blessed with beautiful weather to allow for ample exploration of the city's newly installed bicycle trails; just one of the many ways to get up-close views of the Queen City and the attractions along its' rejuvenated waterfront.
