While Vermont trees are most certainly approaching their utmost vibrancy, we must remember that there are places in WNY that are stunning in their own ways, including the lands surrounding the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Graycliff Estate. Fall is one of the best times of year to visit Graycliff, particularly for this reason.

The Flowery Side of Downtown Buffalo

The talk of the town is the Albright-Knox’s latest mural effort in Downtown Buffalo. The south side of the Ciminelli Real Estate’s Sinclair Building – 465 Washington Street (working title) – has been transformed into a flowery scene the likes of which this city has never seen. Yes, we’ve witnessed some pretty fantastic murals going up around town, but the scale of this one is off the chart. It’s especially nice, considering that there was something missing at that corner, where Washington meets Broadway. Suddenly there is a colorful splash of life that will look sensational throughout the seasons.

Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation converted the former Mentholatum Company into a mix of apartments and 4,107 sq.ft. of retail space in a one-story wing on the north side of the building. The $19 million project designed by CJS Architects welcomed its first tenants early this year.
