194 East Utica - Revisited

Former Buffalo resident and Chicago based architect, David Steele saw my post about 194 East Utica last week. He contacted me and composed this compelling piece over at Buffalo Rising. Check out the comments if you haven't already seen the post.

This morning I wanted to take a closer look at the architectural detail that makes 194 East Utica such an impressive house and an extraordinary opportunity for the adventourus soul willing to take on the project.
Keep in mind that this house is directly across the street from a City school, just around the corner from the African-American Cultural Center on Masten and a few short blocks away from the new Merriweather Library. It's just four blocks away from the developing Artspace project and three short blocks away from the future home of Performing Arts High School. Here's the map.
Good news...
I'll be volunteering in Antoine Thompson's office when the semester is over for a few hours/week. We're going to implement a marketing strategy that is successful in the private sector but sadly missing when it comes to City of Buffalo owened property. That's right. FOR - SALE signs will be added to City owned property here in Masten, such as 194 East Utica. Pictures and links will be going up on Antoine's website! So simple. Stencils and spray paint...
