Artspace Investment Impact Area...

I had the unique opportunity to sit down and talk with a few people yesterday and discuss the Artspace project. Frequent readers here will remember the Artspace Archive. Certain people in City Hall are developing a comprehensive investment impact manual for the area surrounding Artspace. I hope to make this manual available here in .pdf format real soon. This is a positive development for the City's near East-Side. Rumor has it that Strategic Planning Guru Timothy Wannamaker has placed the Artspace project on the top of his list.
These two pics are best viewed in my flickr photostream. Click on one of these pics. It will take you to my flickr account. Then click on "all sizes." You'll quickly have a screen sized image of the impact area.

Before and After...
Artspace - 1219 Main Street artspacebuffalo00020zx
If you haven't stopped into to Delta Sonic yet, the newest Mid-Town retailer, you should. Right across the street from the Artspace location. Dunkin Donuts...the bomb! And the new cafe style restaurant has what I think is the only brick-oven pizza in Buffalo. It'll be a 24-7 spot as soon as Artspace happens...perfect for late nite collaborating...Maybe Buffalo's only pizza reviewer, Buffalo Pundit, will stop in for a few slices...

Great! The City should work hard to get as much spin-off from ArtSpace as possible. We're already seeing some (i.e. Packard), lets hope for more- especially St. Vincents! A great building begging for a new use.

I'd be happy to.

Do they actually make the pies on-site and bake them on the floor of a brick oven?

I'm not sure what La Tee Dah uses, and their pizzas are pretty darn good.

But Dunkin Donuts has decent coffee - crappy donuts.
