Buffalo's 'Preservation By Neglect'

Buffalo, New York has managed to preserve most of its historic buildings due to a lack of economic drive to replace them. Now that Buffalo is doing better, preservationists are hoping to use those assets for revitalization.

From USA Today: "This year, the National Trust named Buffalo one of its 12 top tourist destinations, and the city was the site of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's national conference.

It also has been selected to host the National Trust's conference in 2011. The Society of Architectural Historians is coming in 2014.

Local preservationists revel in such votes of confidence."
