1.) The Blue Ribbon gang: A 1929 robbery and murder reads like it was ripped from the pages of a pulp fiction novel.

2.) St. Ann's Church in danger: A historic landmark is in danger of demolition. Is there hope? Let's pray.

3.) Haunted cemetery: A little known haunted cemetery right here in West Seneca.

4.) West Ferry Lift Bridge: It's a bridge that has spanned the canal through several eras.

5.) St. Anthony's Church: The Italian migration and spirit of renewal lives on in this quaint little church in the heart of downtown.

6.) Francis X. Schawb: One of the city's most colorful mayors was in charge during Prohibition.

7.) Danny Neaverth: Even though his talents have earned him spots in numerous halls of fame, including the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, he remains just a regular guy from South Buffalo.

8.) West Side Rowing: This century old club knows the song "Row, row, row your boat" a little too well.

9.) Swannie House: It's almost as if you can see the entire history of Buffalo from the top of the Swannie House.

10.) Capt. Charles Shunstrom: After amazingly heroic actions in pivotal battles during World War II, Capt. Shunstrom suffered humiliation and abandonment by the very government that he risked his life to protect.

11.) Polonia History: Once the second largest Polish community in the world, this neighborhood is poised for a major renaissance.

12.) The Kazoo: The only musical instrument both invented and manufactured instrument is still made right here in our own backyard.
