Great photos! I like the future skyline. Hopefully it is the not too distant future.

I agree, it adds much more to the skyline. It would surely rejuvenate Buffalo's appearance, aesthetically. Any information about these 3 structures, all 3 to be constructed around the same time table ?

???

Move the big "spire" tower just to the left of Main Place and I'd like it even more. Besides, where it's drawn there would be right in the middle of Church Street. Although traffic congestion it would cause probably wouldn't be worse than what the current signals cause.

Finest collection of photos I have seen not made by the forumers BuffCity and SpartaRoolz (NMOPhoto). I can't believe I didn't see this in the first place. Every time I see Buffalo, I always miss it and am eager to get back and see it! Thanks for posting these, StormShadow. I like the fact you live in NYC and you show great photos of upstate cities as well. It definitely proves there's a lot more to New York State than NYC, a LOT more.

Anthony Bourdain will film a future episode in Buffalo during winter, and of course it will feature the hot wings.

I love that show! Someone needs to make sure he gets to the right bars. He loves a good party and if you want positive press- show that guy a good time. That is the kind of show that can influence people to visit.

He was close to choosing Buffalo out of a few other locations but Saudi Arabia won his selection. But there are articles stating he has plans to visit very soon, especially during winter seasons. I believe he will be featured with "Nelson Starr" also.

B-Lo is better than I thought, particularly with the last two fotos from the first post, and the one from 'steel' with the undulating effect displayed on the facade of some residences..

Nope.

1) It's regular Genny that's depicted, not Genny Cream. Gotta' have the Green Death to help those wings move through your system!
2) Kurtz? WTF kind of mustard is that? Is that some kind of Canadian abomination or something? Weber's or GTFO.
3) No horseradish at the table. Sure, you don't use horeseradish with wings, but at any proper blue-collar gin mill, it's going to be at the table, no questions asked.
4) Celery? Where's the celery?
5) What am I going to do with the wing "empties", throw them on the floor like peanuts at a Ground Round? Where's my wooden bowl, damnit?

EDIT: wing sauce looks authentic and properly applied for "wet" wings (as opposed to the "dry" wings served by some places), they have decent meatiness (e.g. not anorexic BW3-like wings), and the tips are cut off.

You can tell that Elmwood is in a lot better mood these days.
