Fountain Plaza

The frustrating thing about downtown Buffalo is that it's really quite a nice place.

There's a great mix of older buildings with interesting architecture, most of them are in very good shape, and there are plenty of signs of preservation and revitalization. I watched crews working on the facade of a building with the largest boom lift I've ever seen – the work platform was nine stories up. Nobody puts that kind of effort into a city that they don't care about.

It just needs more people, more businesses, and more activity.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
