Buffalo, NY – Architecture

At the turn of the 20th century, Buffalo was one of the wealthiest cities in the United States.  The immense wealth led to the construction of beautiful buildings.  Major architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan designed buildings in Buffalo.  There are grand mansions built along Delaware Avenue known as Millionaire’s Row.  And you can’t miss the art deco style of Buffalo City Hall.  You could easily spend a day or more touring these masterpieces.
