Hey guys, I visited Buffalo, New York one weekend in mid-July to attend the Italian Heritage Festival (Saturday), and tour the Central Terminal the next day (Sunday). I took a detour through parts of north Buffalo and took some pictures along the way, including North Pearl Street, Olmstead Park, the old Buffalo State Hospital and various parts of Lincoln Parkway.

Here we go with the tour...

Started off on historic North Pearl Street...
