Classic Black and White Buffalo

Buffalo in Black and White
Photographing some of my favorite spots in Buffalo with black and white photography takes me back in time. In 1900, Buffalo was the 9th largest city in the United States. Buffalo's popularity was largely due to economic activity driven by grain mills, railroads and the Erie Canal.

Experience the industrial boom while cruising down the Buffalo River. Take a walk through Frederick Law Olmstead's Delaware Park and feel the classic park atmosphere that Buffalonians enjoy on a daily basis. A visit to the H.H. Richardson Complex, designed in 1870, will leave you with the real buffalo chill! Forest Avenue has been home to the Medina red sandstone brick house which was formerly an insane asylum. The complex was operating until the mid 1970's.
