    From the Buffalo News:

    Construction on the Maid of the Mist’s new boat dock and storage facility in the Niagara Gorge went on in the rain Monday, while the fight to halt the work is continuing in court.

    The Niagara Preservation Coalition has asked the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court to issue an injunction to stop the work on the $32?million project because items it describes as “significant historic building remnants” were recently photographed being removed from the site.

    The group also says the New York Power Authority has not followed its own guidelines for how to proceed when “unanticipated” items are found.
