(19) Lockport, NY

A place where I spent the longest time growing up, graduated from High School and currently live, Lockport is located roughly 30 miles from both Buffalo and Niagara Falls, New York. The name comes from the fact that locks 34 and 35 of the Erie Canal cut through the city. There are boats you can ride that take you through the locks and the captain gives a history of the canal. There is even an old quarry behind my house where stones were cut for part of the old sidewalks.

Hey, I didn't know that about Lockport and I live right nearby. You learn something new everyday.

How are you holding up? Ready to pass out, or more energetic than me because you've done this all before?
