The Ice at Canalside

Summer or Winter, there is a lot of fun to be found at Canalside. Whether it’s lunching by the water or ice biking in the winter, it’s definitely worth a trip.

Canalside is at the heart of Buffalo’s waterfront revitalization. It’s located in the city’s downtown corridor, at the intersection of Pearl Street and Marine Drive. The grounds can be accessed through entrances at the foot of Main Street and on Scott Street, or by way of the Naval & Military Park, located on the northwestern edge of the harbor site.

Boaters can also visit Canalside via the Buffalo River. The harbor currently boasts over 1,000 feet of berthing space, with the ability to accommodate over 50 vessels daily and nearly 100 vessels for special events. Transient dockage fees are required, and an hourly rate applies for both water and electric service.

Located adjacent to the KeyBank Center, Canalside can be easily accessed from Buffalo through city streets like Pearl, Washington and Scott, by riding to the southern end of the NFTA Metro rail system on Main Street (Erie Canal Harbor Station), or from exits off the I-190 and Skyway (Route 5). Use the address 44 Prime Street, Buffalo, NY 14202 for GPS navigation.

The Marble Room

As the headquarters of NatCity Investments, which went bankrupt in the 2008 financial meltdown on Wall Street, National City Bank ended its 87-year-old run and closed.

In early 2015, Cleveland’s Millennia Companies purchased the Garfield Building and converted the building’s old offices into 123 apartment units and retail space. In 2017, the opulent old bank at 623 Euclid Avenue has been restored and transformed into the one-of-a-kind Marble Room Steak and Raw Bar. Significantly, the bank’s lower level vaults, once some of the largest in the country, have been updated and re-decorated to create an ultra-exclusive private party space. Bank executives’ offices have been converted to dining boardrooms and cocktail lounges available for private dining and parties. Antique fixtures and gilded tiles have been lovingly restored and are historic focal points of the new, eclectic décor. New features, like an all-glass wine cellar above the bar, house hundreds of fine wines from around the world. A sushi and raw bar proudly displays the freshest seafood. Fabrics, acoustic panels, soft seating, and carpeting have all been carefully selected and installed to quiet the grand, marble-pillared space and provide dining comfort. Photographic art by renowned fashion and portrait artist, Greg Lotus, add an unexpected, playful element to the seriousness of this grand, architectural gem.

Mon-Thurs 11:30-10:00
Friday 11:30-11:00
Saturday 5:00-11:00
Sundays open for special events

The Pedway

Chicago’s downtown pedestrian way system, the Pedway, lies in the heart of the city. This system of underground tunnels and overhead bridges links more than 40 blocks in the Central Business District, covering roughly five miles.

Used by tens of thousands of pedestrians each day, the Pedway connects to public and private buildings, CTA stations and commuter rail facilities.

Development of the Pedway began in 1951, when the City of Chicago built one-block tunnels connecting the Red Line and Blue Line subways at Washington Street and Jackson Boulevard. Since then, both public and private investment have expanded the Pedway, and the system now connects more than 50 buildings.

The Pedway is a safe, quick and convenient way for pedestrians to travel downtown—especially in the winter and during times of rain or snow. The Pedway also benefits traffic by reducing the conflict between vehicles and pedestrians, resulting in fewer accidents and better traffic flow.
