Unfortunately Buffalo isn't the most beautiful place so it's hard to find such buildings....

I know the old asylum, as it's closed down, was kind of freaky while running next to. Seems like the perfect setting for a horror flick.

There are a few nice examples of FLW homes (some early ones in particular) should your luck be so bad to find yourself in Buffalo with time on your hands...

I don't think I've ever heard "Buffalo" and "beautiful" in the same sentence.

Buffalo has more Frank Lloyd Wright buildings than any other city except Chicago, so there are more than a few examples. If modern architecture is more your taste, you could visit the brand-new Burchfield-Penney Art Center, which opened today. Into art deco? Extensive renovations are underway on the Central Terminal building.

If you were in Buffalo, I would think you fortunate to have enough time on your hands to see all these landmarks.

All you need is Blue Nun and acid. And a snow shovel.

According the article:

But it also has become a hub for debt collection"”a lucrative industry in this economic climate. Education and health care play a big part in the economy."
