Hate to see NFTA sell Small Boat Harbor
I was very disappointed to read that the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority is putting its property at the Small Boat Harbor up for sale. In the past several years, the Small Boat Harbor has changed from a utilitarian boat launch into a beautiful jewel of a facility. To its many slip holders and boating enthusiasts using the public ramps, or to its diners, who simply enjoy eating a delicious lunch or dinner at Dug’s Dive while watching the boats in the harbor, the Small Boat Harbor has finally become a destination of choice for our residents.
Finally, after years of waiting, the renovation of Fuhrmann Boulevard, with its new wide walkways, made the Small Boat Harbor easily accessible to any driver, biker or walker. It would be a shame to now have the NFTA “pull the plug” by selling the Boat Harbor to a private developer, potentially closing this waterfront access to the public forever.Penny F. Zeplowitz
