Imagining Buffalo's Waterfront

Please contact Sam Hoyt, Brian Higgins, and Jordan Levy to let them know if you believe that plans for pretend canals and a parking ramp (underground!) should be put on hold for at least 4 months while other, more natural plans are explored. Today's the day for the decision, so don't wait!

Suzie Baker

When I was growing up in Clarence Center the Baker family always converted their large side yard into a skating rink every winter that all the neighborhood kids enjoyed. They had speakers set up for music, and daughter Suzie ran the turntable. A window was right near the rink and frequently she would take requests. We both liked the Beatles along with Alvin and the Chipmunks, but adults eventually intervened, insisting on more soothing notes. An hour later a Beatles tune would sneak through anyway!

Suzie is interwoven into the fabric of Clarence Center as are members of her family. May she rest in peace.
