Greenway for Erie Canal

Waterford, NY – New York Governor George Pataki has tucked $10 million into his executive budget this year to create an Erie Canal Greenway. He says he hopes it will be as successful as the Hudson Valley Greenway has been in terms of generating economic revenue for towns and cities along the water from Waterford to Buffalo, and expand tourism in the state.
