Cosa farete

We will tour the entire West Village including Tracy Street (named after Congressman Albert Tracy - 8th Congress), Johnson Park (Land donated to Buffalo by the first mayor Ebenezer Johnson to establish the city's first park), Whitney Place, Prospect Avenue and the entry point of West Chippewa and Georgia Streets, all a wealth of Second Empire, Victorian, Georgian and Italianate architecture. Guests will also see adaptive reuse of century-old structures according to preservation standards and how the West Village has used community-powered change to create a flourishing and diverse neighborhood, bringing it back from an area that was once filled with boarded up structures. The tour allows the guest to experience the legacy of community development from the mid-1800's to present time. A discussion of New Urbanism coupled with History is the defining aspect of this tour over others. The tour lasts approximately one hour and we can end at a local coffee house for refreshments and a Q&A period for anyone who wishes more information.

I have been into the architecture and history of the Historic West Village in Buffalo for almost 25 years and have developed the hidden stories of many of the buildings (most built prior to the Civil War Era) here. I am currently a semi-retired nonprofit professional that has been researching the history of my home town as well as the towns of my ancestors in Sicily and the UK. Now, I wish to share these stories with guests to Buffalo as well as describe the architecture and history of the development of the Village area, giving each guest an intimate view of the development of Buffalo, NY.

Dove ti troverai

All West Village streets of Tracy, Johnson Park, Whitney Place, Prospect Avenue, Georgia, and West Chippewa featuring a wide array of mid-1800's architecture and historic stopries of interest (ex: the House Grover Cleveland lived in as a student, Major architects' works such a Christopher Chamot, and the home built by Katherine Cornell's grandfather. Also included is the view of prosperity of the 1800's to blight of the 1970's to the renaissance.
