(Formerly: Providence Social)
490 Rhode Island Street
Buffalo, NY 14213

Buffalo's West Side was once a hotbed of mob activity and government surveillance as law enforcement tried to make a dent in the criminal underworld, often with little success. Join us on an entertaining, private walking tour from Explore Buffalo and find out how the mob succeeded at eluding the government for decades.

Afterward, stick around to network and catch up with PRSA friends and colleagues on the patio at Remedy House (429 Rhode Island St.), one of the new places to watch in the Five Points Neighborhood. A coffee house by design, Remedy House offers beer, wine and spirits, along with its café-type menu.


Register early! Attendance is capped at 35 individuals to keep our tour group small and intimate.

The tour will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. in front of the former Providence Social (490 Rhode Island Street, Buffalo) and end nearby. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather — the tour is about two hours long and will proceed rain or shine. Photography is encouraged! Free street parking is available on Rhode Island, Chenango and other nearby streets.
