Walking Around Artspace

This morning I met a couple fixBuffalo readers and walked the Artspace Neighborhood. Since Artspace plans were finalized in February of '06 the neighborhood has attracted a significant amount of attention. There are now major residential renovation projects happening on every block.

I'll keep track of my Saturday morning pics - Walking around Artspace - and update the series every two weeks.

Here's the schedule for the rest of 2008, rain or shine. Meet-up is at the Sonice Cafe at 9am, right across from Artspace. Here's the map.

As someone new to Buffalo, and interested in urban issues and revitalization, this is a great blog. I'll have to join you for a walk...

Hi David. Thanks for the neighborhood walk yesterday. As we discussed I'm a recent repatriate (been in the DC metro area for serveral years) and I'm looking forward to participating in the fix buffalo movement. I like the exciting redevelopment projects going on in the area and appreciate your efforts in reviving it. I graduated from the now-defunt neighborhood high school Bishop O'hern and my yearbooks are being shipped from Virginia. When they arrive I'll call you to take a look at them to see what the school looked like back in the day. Wouldn't it be great to revive it?

Truly yours, Ros Gadley

Hi Dave - I'd like to see the zoom version of the picture, but flickr says I don't have permission. I'll have to make it out for one of these walks. J. Hall
