Saturday Morning Tours...

Regular 11am Saturday morning tour of the neighborhood - Backyard at Artspace. Meet-up in the Sonic Café area and plan on walking down Coe Place, around Ellicott, Northampton and Holland Place and Dodge if we have time. Plenty to see and learn about in an hour. Come on over and learn about the coolest emerging neighborhood in Buffalo! Here's the map!

Here's what we saw on a recent tour - Saturday Surprise!

Thanks for the tour today David.

Was nice to run into a childhood friend of Rick James along the way.

97 Dodge will fill my imagination for a while...

I'll be back again on a "blue sky" day.

David- I will be back home for Buffalo Old Home Week and plan on taking your tour july 7. I look forward to meeting you.

MJ- Rick James was a former resident of the area, back when he went by his real name of James Johnson the family lived on Best Street. I don't know the exact address but I'll bet his childhood friend would know. My family lived at Ellicott & Best from 1941-1957.

Indeed! I'd be down for one as well if you're still doing it.

I have spent the last two hours reading this blog. It's fantastically done. Thank you!
