New Owner Brings Friendly, Professional Atmosphere to Sink or Swim Tattoo

Sink or Swim Tattoo, located on the second floor of a commercial building at 1040 Payne Ave., North Tonawanda, is under new ownership, with a familiar face now running the operation.

Former Sink or Swim tattoo artist Keith Kuzara took ownership of the business on Oct. 1, 2015, after working at the shop for nearly four years. Kuzara is a self-taught and award-winning tattoo artist with six years of industry experience.

“I was planning on opening my own shop eventually, when this opportunity suddenly popped up,” said Kuzara. “With the previous owner moving out of state, the timing and situation was right to take over the business.”

Sink or Swim now employs five tattoo artists, including the multi-tattooed owner.

Falls Dewatering Could Be Big Tourism Boost


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y -- With the State proposing dewatering- or shutting off the American side of Niagara Falls- to build two new bridges, Niagara Falls city leaders say it could mean a big boost for tourism.

They think this could attract not only people from around the world, but those of us who have visited the Falls too many times to count. That's because this is something that hasn't happened in 47 years, and it is expected to be a big draw.

There is a stakeholder meeting this Wednesday night to talk about the proposal to dewater the Falls. Part of that meeting will focus on its impact on tourism.

The Niagara Falls City Council Chairperson told us the time of year he thinks would work best.

Niagara Falls Gets $250k For 72nd St. Project


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - Albany found a little money in the 2015 budget to help out Niagara Falls after water lines froze for the past two Winters in the 72nd street neighborhood.

The freezing lines left dozens of residents without running water.

Monday, Senator Rob Ortt announced that the state will give the city a $250,000 grant for the project that will put water lines deeper into the ground where so they will not freeze.

The grant will not cover all the finances for the work, but Senator Ortt says it's a start, "Obviously a little embarrassing, but i think it also highlights the fact that we have aging infrastructure across Western New York, the infrastructure has to be maintained, has to be fixed, has to be improved, and it all costs money."

After this grant, the remaining cost would be $670,000. The city and its water board don't currently have an agreement on splitting those costs.
