Buffalo, NY Seamless entry into Canada Multiple lanes open and when lines got long, another lane was opened Polite yes polite! We checked the GPS later in the day and Saturday, and the wait times was hours.
They ask the standard questions when entering Canada that most countries ask: Where are you from Where are you visiting and for how long What are your occupations Easy, stress-free interaction At first I thought this bridge was owned by a guy named Peter.
That is not the case anymore. Based on the Beauty and the significance of this bridge it would score five but when you factor in my 1 star rating for the Customs here at this border it averages out to 3. The most recent time I crossed through here I was delayed for 8 hours.
My friend who works at customs and whose name I could never tell you even explained to me why this sort of thing happens and it disgusts me. It certainly has nothing to do with them actually thinking I was any kind of a threat to anything.
Except maybe a threat to all the food in the area and the bubble teas. All these dirty lazy foreigners, coming here, working hard and stealing our jobs while being totally lazy.
But the name is quite appropriate, after all, has any country in the world behaved more peacefully in the last years than the USA? I mean really, think about it. So many warmongers out there, so many big military nations and big military budgetsso many guns, so many bombs, hell some people have even used nukes.
I think because the USA have abstained from all of this, consistently for decades upon decades, that "Peace Bridge" works perfectly. I have had faster experiences both ways than I have crossing at Rainbow.
The Italian Mafia are trying to buy out this bridge just as they bought out the Buffalonian government. If they manage to do so, they will change the name to "The Kapish Bridge. The Peace Bridge crossing is no exception. Use it and thank me later.
They had plenty of lanes open despite that, which is unusual at other crossings. Heck, coming back in the USA they had 5 lanes open for 2 cars.
Also the bridge has a nice arch on top, not just a boring cookie cutter. Plus you skip the Grand Island toll this way. They do ask you a lot of questions, typically. I can think of a maybe a handful of times when this did not happen.
When my son was much younger, he was nonverbal and even though I would always give the agent a doctors letter stating this, they would still insist on trying to question him. Asking him if he felt safe traveling with me, what was his name, nationality, ect. They had his papers and the letter that they had read, but they would still harass him anyway.
Usually this prompted an embarrassed response and we were quickly released. I never got this on the U. Now when we cross, we usually make jokes about all the questions.
What is purpose of your visit: Lots and lots of the Canadian pleasure. Where will you be staying: The back of your lifted pickup truck! How long is your visit: That depends on how long you can last, friend. Are you bringing anything with you that you intend to leave here in Canada: Only a good time ; P.
It certainly takes a ton of truck traffic. It is a pretty bridge to look at, especially at night when it is lit up. I have to rate the Canadian border people quite a bit more friendly than the US border people.Queen Street Fort Erie, ON L2A 3S6 Canada; 1 Peace Bridge Plaza Buffalo, NY United States.
The Buffalo plaza work will cost between $40 million to $50 million, the agreement states, and that will come from Peace Bridge Authority funds. Another $15 million in improvements will be funded. The Peace Bridge and Buffalo What can construction do for an area? The construction of an office building may bring in a firm, corporation, or company.
The construction of a sporting arena may keep a team where it currently is, or bring a new team to that area. Contact Port Office. For directions to the Port Office, please contact the Port Office.
In New York alone, almost , jobs are supported by trade with our North America neighbors. Buffalo's Peace Bridge makes those jobs possible. I have a question about the thing underneath the Peace Bridge.
(caninariojana.como) submitted 2 years ago by captaineighttrack. man, idk, there's no information on how the thing was built.
perhaps contact the army corp of engineers if you want details, maybe the historical society might have information.
