Boom Days @ Silo City!

Here are a couple photos I snapped this weekend while attending the BOOM DAYS celebration at the grain elevators aka Silo City.

Buffalo’s grain elevators are something that we should be proud of and celebrate more often. This was the first time I have seen hundreds of people come out to tour these gentle giants. One of the tour guides commented that a woman cried when learning about the grain elevators and expressed the true desire and need for these structures to come back to life.

Touring, drinking, dancing and having a giant party in the Perot grain elevator  is a solid sign that we Buffalonians are really starting to understand the importance of celebrating and enjoying our historic built environment – even if its in a state of inactivity and decay.  Buffalo’s second skyline is truly unique, something you may find in Europe but rarely found in the United States. What a dream come true and what a great place to call home.

Lets do it again, Buffalo.
