Living in Rochester, New York, the Erie Canal has been a strong presence in my life--I've pulled many a fish out of it and put many a .22 caliber bullet into it. Once neglected, New York State has put a lot of money into refurbishing the Erie Canal system over the last decade or so, and it's now a beautiful boating destination for many. The canal is still a conduit for commercial boating traffic and large barges can be seen plying its waters. East and west of Rochester, the quaint towns of Fairport, Spencerport, Brockport, Lockport, and Gasport wouldn't have borne the inclusion of "port" in their names, or even existed at all, if not for the construction and presence of the Erie Canal. That old song, "Buffalo Gals" references Buffalo, New York, and it's lovely ladies at the western terminus of the canal.
