From the Curbed article:
By 1990, the population of Buffalo had shrunk below 1900 levels, a startling decline for a city just across the state from NYC, whose population more than doubled in the same period. But for fans of architecture, there are certain upsides to a receding economy. So how did Buffalo architecture buffs benefit from their city's industrial decline? Well, for one, they missed out on much of the building boom of the latter half of the 20th century, meaning classic buildings like the dazzling Guaranty Building by Louis Sullivan (above) weren't knocked down and replaced with a mediocre modern office tower. And the same inadvertent preservation holds true for similarly impressive works of the mid century, like Eliel and Eero Saarinen's Kleinhans Music Hall (below),which is an elegant mixture of Eliel's Arts & Crafts style and his son's modern sensibilities, completed in 1940.Curbed, like every good site, refers to our very own David Steele and his book on Buffalo architecture - you can purchase your copy here.
The Curbed post also shows off 50 Tudor Place, a beautiful mansion for sale we profiled about 10 months ago (and yes, it's still for sale) and a 2,500 sq ft condo in The Campanile listed at $579,000.
