December 31, 2006 - Day 189
Grabbed some recent shots the other day of some of the changes taking place here on the City's near East side. The largest of the three new additions to the building that used to be Buffalo Traditional HS is of course the new Art wing which is well underway. Early mornings here continue to be noisy with crews banging away at the steel structure and rearranging the scaffolding on what seems to be a daily basis.

With Artspace opening a few blocks away this summer and Performing Arts opening up with the beginning of the 2007 school year what an amazing example for Buffalo students to see and experience the opportunity to live and work as artists...here in Buffalo, NY!

Here's the complete set of flickr photos of this reconstruction project from day #1.

I'm skeptical whether this can really make a meaningful contribution to the community development of the neighborhood, given that it is essentially a commuter school.

Smart cities would build smaller, neighborhood schools that a large majority of staff and students walk too.

What is the idea here?

Are you suggesting that this school should somehow become a boarding school?

Tell me please about a "smart city" building smaller neighborhood schools...love to know.
