    Interesting about how Lockport handles the lock situation. We have new pedestrian bridges in Jamestown and a member of our Riverfront Management Council suggested maybe making a place for people to put locks, as an attraction. From a Parks Management standpoint, I know it could create a burden on our already way overburdened staff to take care of/remove/etc. but I can see the attraction of allowing people to do it.

    I’ve always just considered Lockport famous for its connection to the Erie Canal, but it’s great to see them branching out to something a bit more modern while still retaining that connection to the past. It’d be interesting to see if they really embrace the idea of all things lock-related and what else they can do to foster tourism. Neat stuff, though. And, to be honest, probably more marketable than a gum tree; yuck!
