Exploring Bflo over Vaca

To share my architecture and history passion with my students, I invited families to meet me at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Museum on Presidents Day for 1/2 price admission and to City Hall the next day where we enjoyed a panoramic view of Buffalo while going in one of Buffalo’s most stunning buildings, City Hall!

Buffalo is unique by definition that it is not very vertical; however it is rather dense. Buffalo’s inception was officially between 1817 and 1825 with the completion of the Erie Canal (it was a village dating earlier back and part of Niagara County since Erie County was yet to be formed). Verticality was not popular until much after Buffalo’s inception, when steel production was on the rise and the elevator was invented (by a Buffalonian). The taller historic buildings that we do boast are very intricate and charming therefore our skyline is uniquely dotted!

It is important that we don’t continue to demolish historic buildings to put in parking lots. You can see in some of these picture that parking lots affect our density and make the city center less walkable. I walked from my house by Niagara and Porter today to City Hall. It was about a 25 minute walk of beauty, history, and architecture.

If you couldn’t make it today, wet can discuss meeting over spring break. The information that I provided above is just a glimpse of the knowledge that I can share with you!!

The students learned about architecture on career day because I taught them about the career: architect!  We also learned about urban areas at the beginning of the school year.

The kiddos were going wild over some of the beautiful architecture that Buffalo boasts.

To share my architecture passion with the kids, I invite you to meet me at City Hall over vacation where we’ll enjoy a panoramic view of Buffalo while going in one of Buffalo’s most stunning buildings, city hall!

I am going to show up on Tuesday no matter what, but if you feel like you’re going to come, send me an email!

Also, the Theodore Roosevelt Inauguration Museum at the Wilcox Mansion has half price admission on Monday.  If you are interested in going and would like me to meet you there, please email me the time slot that you booked through their website.

Here’s the link to buy tickets, but they’re going fast!
