Architecture is still the story
Preservation magazine's July/August cover
Almost every architectural landmark in Buffalo has been in danger of demolition—even this one, which almost came down in 1977, but was saved though advocacy by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, among others.
The Sullivan Guaranty building, now beautifully restored inside and out, is Preservation magazine’s July/August cover girl. Logan Ward’s feature story focuses on Buffalo’s most dramatic architectural landmarks; it includes discussions of City Hall, the Darwin Martin House, and Richardson’s State Hospital, as well as Ellicott’s radial street plan, West Side neighborhoods, and more. Ward also discusses how the city’s impressive architectural legacy can be an engine for cultural tourism and economic revitalization. Read the whole thing here:
