Some believe the S.S. Columbia could sail along the recent path of the Buffalo waterfront which has been revitalized after years of neglect and abuse. The 118-year-old Columbia once traveled throughout the Great Lakes, but now sits in a state of disrepair along the Buffalo River. On WBFO's Press Pass, Newell Nussbaumer of Buffalo Rising discusses the vessel's special history and the effort to make it part of Buffalo's future.
