I had no idea we would find Buffalo as interesting as we did.

Being quite an upstate snob, we entered the western city rather reluctantly. With a dear friend calling the wing city his hometown, it was insisted that we see a different part of Buffalo, changing our minds forever. So we were given our own private tour of the town downwind from the mists of Niagara.

Buffalo is rich in architecture, history and urban renewal. City revivalists have reclaimed downtown neighborhoods and preserved buildings as much as possible.

We also paid a visit to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, neon-lit by an uber-contemporary exhibit. Came close to giving me the wow-factor.

As we departed, our minds were forever changed. Gone was the industrialst, party-all-night stigma previously thought of B'lo.

    I grew up in Buffalo. while I would never move back there, I think it is a great city. lots to do, esp. in the summer. full of festivals and free stuff. it does not deserve the mocking it generally receives.

    There is a great historical novel based on turn of the century Buffalo called "City of Light" The history regarding the city is quite fascinating. Did you know McKinley was assassignated there?
