One of the largest pool tournaments in the country is taking over the Bayfront Convention Center this weekend.
Check out some of the world’s best pool players today down on the bayfront.
Almost three years into the [Bayfront bluffs beautification] project, there has been some success: there are some better views of the bay and there are isolated gardens developing here and there. But the bluff is missing too many trees, and getting down to the water is neither easier nor safer.
Instead of promoting access, the focus seems to have been on clearing the bluff to install corporate logos-on-stilts. While Erie’s zoning code does not permit advertising signs on the waterfront, the signage was described as ‘part of the park.’ Apparently members of Erie City Council agreed with this view, eliminating the need for a conversation with zoning officials. …
Erie deserves a landmark on the Bayfront Bluff. After clearing, the first priority should have been to start building the bones of this new “place” – a series of paths and plazas. … As residents of Erie, we don’t have to settle for “good enough.” Like our collective great-grandparents who commissioned John Nolen’s city vision, we can ask for – and receive – a world-class masterpiece on Erie’s Bayfront bluff."

Another new hotel on the Bayfront? There is currently a need, but there is also a risk of the bayfront getting oversaturated with needless obstruction.

Attractions include Primanti Bros., Mad Mex restaurant, H&M, Forever 21, Pandora, Five Below and Field & Stream according to Your Erie.

Scott said the authority’s decision not to reduce the size of its new hotel might mean Scott’s Harbor Place development might feature only one of two planned 110-room hotels.
But Scott said plans for one of those hotels are moving forward.
He said his Scott Enterprises has paid Hilton Hotel & Resorts a nonrefundable franchise fee needed to develop a hotel at Harbor Place under the Hilton brand of Hampton Inn & Suites. And he said his company received approval from Hilton to put 15 to 20 apartments on the top four floors of that hotel’s 10 floors — a unique possibility he said his company is considering."
