A graduate business student, born and raised in Buffalo, with aspirations of becoming a marketing professional and community leader. My passions lay in this city, from its history to its sports teams, and everything in between. My roots are in this city and my family is the most important thing in my life.
In 2012, we are surrounded by developers who are looking to improve Buffalo in order to return this city to its “original glory.” These recent developments include proposals for the waterfront and outer harbor, as well as restorations to historical buildings like the Statler, Hotel Lafayette and the Buffalo Central Terminal. While many strides have been taken, there are still many historical sites that have fallen by the way side. I will evaluate every corner of Buffalo from what it was then to what it is now, whether it has been improved and restored, or abandoned and left to crumble. I will also highlight many of the recent development plans, such as those for the outer harbor and old wharf, including recent plans for the old site of the Memorial Auditorium and Webster block.
Buffalo then and Buffalo now – a historical evaluation of what this city was, what it is re-developing into now, and everything in between.
