Buffalo New York
In recent years one of America’s oldest city has revitalilzed its downtown and Lake Erie waterfront areas. Summer weather is perfect for visitors and locals to get out and enjoy this city’s “old” neighborhoods becoming trendy and new. We began our evening with a delicious Italian dinner on the rooftop patio at “Tappo” on Ellicott Street. We looked at the menu as the wait staff served, and we quickly realized that three of us could easily have a “to go” box with two orders. So, we opted for appetizers and cocktails to start, then sharing dinner. The Restaurant is located in the heart of the downtown business area, and surrounded by buildings dating back to the early 1900’s.

After a delicious cannoli for dessert, a relaxing walk just seemed like the perfect idea. So off to Riverworks, a waterside entertainment complex designed around the historic grain mills and elevators. I give the “thumbs up” to the city of Buffalo and the developer of Riverworks for preserving a great piece of history. This complex offers an interesting way to share the past, and a valuable use of recycling materials that laid around for many years.
In the “side view” photo of the silo, one can only imagine how much “fluffy” dry grain could be stored. Someone is eating alot of “Cherrios”
