Buffalo. Huh?

Norwood Avenue in Buffalo is one of my favorite streets. It is packed densely for over one mile with big Victorians. All the streets around it are spectacular as well. Very much worth your time if you are ever passing through.

Very good pics! Norwood certainly does have some of the best Victorian houses in Buffalo.

Very cool pics, Steel. Reminds me of Northwest Portland. What's the feel of the area? Who lives in these homes? Are they all single family?

Mostly single family some mixed in 2 flats some of the bigger singles were split into multiples. Often the biggest houses had servants quarters that were made into apartments. That is why you sometimes see a fire escape from the 3rd floor.

The area is a mix of people and incomes but mostly upper middle income and growing. There are a lot of colleges students and families. Fairly typical urban yuppy type neighborhood.

I remember driving around in that part of town randomly and was quite amazed at the array of architecture out there.
