Buffalo, NY. An excellent visit. I really love this town - one of many reasons being that it protects its old architecture. Look at this building! Currently closed, the “Richardson Building” is slated to become a library, among other things - but its history is just way too good: this classically creepy structure used to be an asylum for the insane. I don’t think it could appear more fitting to its former purpose. (That tiny black dot in the photograph is a crow, by the way. I’ve come to photograph this building three or four separate times - and every time, it has been surrounded by crows, only adding to its horror-film atmosphere.) All that from a building made of pink stone. Righteous.
Other incredible things to see in Buffalo include:
A bunch of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. Such quality and grace!
The Roycroft Museum and craft group - makes Ikea weep in its sleep.
Babeville: an old and impressive church, renovated as Ani DiFranco’s music HQ.
The Anchor Bar: point-of-origin for the world-famous Buffalo Wing. (Tasty!)
Plus a whole host of incredible homes, temples, and churches over a century old - and more interesting places to eat than I’ve ever seen. I’ll say it again - I love this town!
