You're not alone, Jason. I've always loved Buffalo. People laugh at me when I call it "mini-Chicago", but that's exactly what it is. I used to live in Niagara so I spent alot of time in Buffalo lurking in the shrubbery and peering in the windows of the Darwin D. Martin House before they started the renos, hanging out at the Albright Knox, and walking around the truly jaw-dropping Psychiatric Hospital, now abandoned, by H.H.Richardson (on hospital grounds designed by Olmstead!). The Psychiatric Hospital alone is worth the trip. Also cool is Forest Lawn Cemetery near the Albright-Knox, and at least 5 Frank Lloyd Wright houses including the beautifully restored Martin House. I could go on and on, but I'll leave it there.
