The Erie Canal was the marvel of its age. It helped make New York the Empire State, and it did much to make New York City grow as well as many cities along its line, such as Syracuse, Albany, Rochester, and Buffalo. The canal lowered the cost of shipping goods, created interconnecting markets, and it provided transport for migrants heading west. The canal changed not only the geographical landscape, but also the social, political, and religious landscape as well.
