Along Michigan Avenue

One of my favorite spots along Michigan Avenue. Here's the map!

1325 Michigan Avenue is the most unique building - besides St. Vincent's - between Artspace and Performing Arts HS. If you are interested in taking a closer look, we walk past here during the Artspace Backyard walking tour on Saturdays.
Behind the roll-up garage door thing is a very cool entrance into a retail spot. Last year, Chris Hawley identified this location as a former tavern, back in the day in his Midtown: Poised for Renaissance.

An no, last time I checked the City doesn't own this...

Bill,

This spot is privately owned and according to City records is owned by a City of Buffalo resident.

According to my best information, verified 10 minutes ago, with a call to Buffalo's Housing Court, this place has never been written up for court.

Bill,

Tried approaching the owner of this place today. No one was home. Sending letter tomorrow.

Check back for updates.

i have told a couple of friends just this evening about your blog.
florida real estate has maxed out, and we are saddled with an impossible insurance conundrum. affordability has become a major issue in every florida community. i told my friends that it might be time to check out other areas that aren't quite as expensive. buffalo prices are shockingly low. two of the houses which i have restored and sold in the past several years were in far worse shape than those on dodge and utica which you have featured.
