More Beautiful Buildings

Past installments of the Beautiful Buildings Gallery were composed of randomly chosen buildings.  I assembled them in a group simply because they were wonderful to look at and appreciate.  This week’s gallery is also composed of beautiful to look at buildings, but this time they were chosen because they all have something in common.

Each of the buildings here is either in danger of being lost, was saved from being demolished, or is currently under used and in poor condition.

They are all gorgeous and worthy of being saved and utilized to their highest potential. Buffalo cannot afford to lose these treasures.  It is critical that the city embrace its history as a major asset for its future. Each of these buildings, from the extravagance of Sheas to the sublime industrial simplicity of the Black Smith Shop, are irreplaceable pieces of Buffalo’s heritage. They link us directly to the lives of our ancestors while giving us a beautifully crafted backdrop in which to lead our lives.

(Are you a super Buffalonian? The images are numbered for reference. Challenge your knowledge of Buffalo and list the buildings and locations.  Some are pretty easy. Some you will have to be a real aficionado )
