Hotel Henry in the Richardson Olmsted Complex is one new attraction in Buffalo worth checking out. 

For the 13th year, the New York Times has put out its list of 52 Places to visit in the new year.

Buffalo made the cut.

It’s quite an honor, considering this is an international list, including such far-flung locales as¬†Colombia (“With the war over, the entire country is opening up”) and Vierwaldstaettersee, Switzerland, which has ladybug-themed hiking trails and yodel and alphorn concerts.

We join a generous handful of American cities that put is in prestigious company. Baltimore is No. 15. A stunning photo shows its glistening waterfront. Cincinnati is No. 8, its photo showing its newly renovated classical music hall.

The coveted No. 1 ranking goes to New Orleans. OK, that’s inevitable. They’re tough competition. We had to bow to them years ago, remember, when they took top prize as the nation’s fattest city, and we had to settle for second place.

By the time you’ve scanned the list into the 30s, you’re getting impatient. When is the list going to get to us?

Ah! Buffalo!

At No. 37.
