BUFFALO (WBEN) - The goal was to create an all-encompassing online location that creates a connection between Canalside and the Outer Harbor, where people can go to learn about everything happening on the waterfront.

"The announcement here today is about the buffalowaterfront.com website, and it's our new website that we're unveiling under this parent brand of the Buffalo Waterfront," said Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation President Steve Ranalli. "It's our way of bringing Canalside and the Outer Harbor together into one spot online through the website and all social media."

You can listen to Ranalli's full comments below:

Patrick Kaler serves as the CEO of Visit Buffalo Niagara, and he says that combining everything that's occurring on the waterfront into one location will certainly be a benefit to tourists who don't know the various names and places of the area.

"The redevelopment of the Buffalo Waterfront is truly at the heart of this transformation," said Kaler. "It is what we consider to be the welcome mat or the front door to Buffalo. The launch of the website will improve the visitor experience in Buffalo, make the waterfront even more accessible and easier to navigate than ever before."
