• Image of Stairs for Boats, Green

How do you get a boat up a 60 foot cliff?

Put some legs on it and walk it up a flight of stairs.

In a way, that's just what the Erie Canal locks in Lockport do. I mean, without the legs. It would be a little weird in real life.

Through the majestic power of hydraulics and stuff, the historic Lockport Flight of Five locks, now reduced to just two locks, allow boats to climb and descend the cliff — the same one that Niagara Falls drops over. And they gave Lockport its name. Magic!

Unlike the locks, these soft cotton shirts won't be restored 100 years after they become useless. Get a limited-edition shirt before they're all gone!
