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!
