Art: Front Row View
What can be seen from this point? Seagulls converge around Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who overlooks the lake which bears the name of his victory battle from the War of 1812. Since Perry had secured Lake Erie the Niagara Thruway has been built where a sign behind a garden in Front Park has been erected. Center in the photograph is the Great Lake herself surrounding Buffalo’s red-roofed water intake, taking in 125 million gallons of drinking water for the city every day. Yet even further in the distance are sailboats upon the water and the hazy blue Canadian shoreline and hills.
