20140507. On weekdays, this vast space under the I-190 at Main St in Buffalo is used as a parking lot.


In Toronto such spaces exist under the Gardiner Expressway west of Spadina Avenue. Some areas are used informally as parking lots while others sit vacant.

With new developments rising next to the Gardiner Expressway, many of these spaces could be reprogrammed whereas in Buffalo, with so much office space unused, new uses for these dead spaces are unlikely.

With the steel beams running into the distance, I find this space intriguing.

20140428. The glass-covered interior court of the Ellicott Square Building – “one of Buffalo’s most ornamental public spaces.”


I was excited to get inside here for a reason other than the grandeur of this place named after the founder of Buffalo. There was a Charlie the Butcher outlet serving Beef on Weck (to the right and mostly out of frame) which I was told was amazing. Sadly, I completely forgot about the sandwich after photographing the court.
