Tucked away near the waterfront is the Irish Famine Memorial. I believe the spot was located here as so many Irish came here looking for work due to the emigration from Ireland. Many traveled on the Erie Canal. The granite monolith in the center and the 32 surrounding stone (representing the Irish counties) were imported from Ireland. In my opinion, there should be better signs indicating its location.

Being from Ireland was very interested to see this memorial to the Great Famine. Loved the simple design of the stone and the fact that the stones came from both Galway and Penrose Quay in Cork both counties I have an association with.
Found the information there well laid on as my companion didn't know much about the famine and was surprised so many people had died. Very moving.
