Buffalo News article - here
I remember commenting to my friend as we entered the '33' at Best Street on Saturday afternoon - 'every time i drive along this stretch i feel as though i add insult to injury' - and am rather embarrassed now not to have noticed that 2 Girard was already gone. It was demolished the day after Christmas.
To see the full impact of what we have lost, visit Historic Aerials - here, for a look at what the neighborhood was like in 1958. Take a moment to compare the 1958 map with the 2006 image, using the convenient slider tool. Staggering.
2 Girard posts - going back to March 2005 - including some interior pics.
