"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

This is a classic film noir private detective story with participants fighting over plans of a Nikola Tesla invention that was separated by Tesla into two parts so it could not be built without having both halves. Scenes were shot at the Grain Elevators, many locations around Buffalo, on the Steam Engines at the Col. Ward, Niagara Falls and even the Lockport Locks and caves. They are working on releasing the film in the Spring. It's a fun, tense detective movie definitely worth seeing especially if your from WNY. This movie is a great boost for Buffalo...

Matt Urban Hope Center to Hold Annual Harvest for Hope Gathering

Harvest for Hope, an annual gathering benefitting the Matt Urban Hope Center, returns from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Pearl Street Grill, 76 Pearl St., Buffalo. The event provides funding so the Hope Center can continue to provide crucial services for residents of the lower East Side of Buffalo who suffer from extreme poverty (45.9 percent of whom live below the poverty rate).

The Hope Center assists residents with securing benefits and services necessary to obtain and sustain safe, decent and affordable housing. The Hope Center provides a “one-stop shop” to help homeless and low-income families get back on their feet. It also includes the “Urban Diner” (in collaboration with Friends of the Night People), where free dinners are served restaurant-style, Monday through Friday evenings to community members in need.
