We’re Back and Breathing

We’re back and I’m feeling lazy, which is the whole point, I guess. Had a wonderful time, checked out the Erie Canal, visited wineries, went to the glass museum in Corning and rediscovered Buffalo, New York. It seems to be on the verge of a renaissance, or so it looks. I remember smoke stacks, vacant buildings and empty, broken-windowed storefronts. Now they’re fixing up stuff like this:

And that’s just the outside. Here’s what’s in the lobby:

The building is in use, by a law firm that participated in its renovation.

  1. Glad you had a great time! That building is gorgeous. I love seeing old buildings restored. It’s true when they ‘they just don’t make ’em like that anymore.’

    1. You’ve certainly got that right. I’ll post picture of other restored buildings from the city as well. I’m amazed at the work they’re doing.
