Very interesting. You should have an interest in the river. Would have like to see more restored vessels, other than models.

The lady was very informative and gave me flyers and ideas of what to see, where to go. The place has some photos, and a public bathroom.

Lots of local info is readily available here. Don't miss the small upstairs mini-museum with pics and paraphenalia from the past. Even the bricks and bluestone that used to be part of the areas economy are to be found. Enjoyed learning more about the area.

This visitor center by the waterfront has a wealth of information about the area. Especially useful are self guided walking tours of the city. Helpful maps and info about dining, activities, etc. Free parking in municipal parking lot near center.

The Visitor Center at the waterfront is a jewel.Staffed by friendly people. Well stocked with literature. As a result, however, it stands out like a sore thumb in what is basically a slum. The waterfront walkway (basically old railroad tracks) was overgrown with ankle-high weeds....More
