10th Annual 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes'


BUFFALO, NY - April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and to take a stand against gender relations and sexual violence UB and Crisis Services paired up to host their annual "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event.

The idea is to get as many men as possible to join together for a one-mile walk wearing a pair of women's high-heeled shoes.

Organizers hope to start a conversation about sexual violence in a fun and healthy way.

This is the event's 10th year.

Unique Places: Karpeles manuscript Library and Museum


BUFFALO, NY – The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum is truly one of the most unique locations in Western New York, or any other place else in the country, for that matter.

Two On Your Side's Claudine Ewing takes us inside this impressive and unusual museum, which is home to a rotating collection of priceless documents spanning millennia of human history.

Constructed in 1911 as the home of the First Church of Christ Scientist, the impressive neo-Classical building at 220 North Street was occupied by Christian Scientists until the early 1980s, followed by a succession of Baptist congregations. It was purchased by the museum's directors in December 2003 and after extensive renovations was formally opened to the public as the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum in the summer of 2006.
