"For $30,000, New York state sold exclusive development rights along its 524-mile state canal system, which includes the Erie Canal, to Buffalo developer Richard Hutchens after running a small advertisement that produced only Hutchen's bid...the stories showed the state courted Hutchens for years before running an ad tailored to a project Hutchens proposed. The state cannot explain what happened to 32 other companies that expressed some interest in development along the canal."
