A website dedicated to the many neighbors living along the Erie Canal in New York State... some above the waterline, others below it.

The Erie Canal Neighbors Association, or ECNA, is dedicated to bringing a different perspective of life in New York State, one from the canal "neighbor's" point of view. Take a look around, we have a full menu of choices from an interactive ECNA Forum to pages dedicated to the Canals Embankment Program to the new Reimagine the Canals transformation of the NYS Canal System. Hopefully you will find something interesting here, or at least learn a little more about the Erie Canal, from it's neighbor's view.

Speaking of beautiful Canal Views... here's one from Fairport.

Do you use the Nextdoor App to see what's new in your neighborhood?

The Erie Canal Neighbors Association has started to connect Erie Canal neighbors across the state on this social media site. Normally it's not possible for "cross-town" conversations on Nextdoor but a bit of ingenuity and perseverance go a long way. Introducing, The ECNA on Nextdoor. 

If you live any of the places shown below you can join our ECNA Group on Nextdoor, in your own neighborhood. Once you join one area ECNA, you will be invited to join others if you wish to. If you don't see your town listed please contact us directly and we see what can be done.
