MEDINA – A cyclist passes by the Erie Canal in Medina’s canal basin. Main Street is a block away. A row of historic Medina sandstone buildings back up near the canal.

This photo was taken from the north side of the canal. The historic waterway officially closed for the season on Friday and will soon be drained for the winter.

The canal’s 190th annual season kicks off in May.
