Greenhouse on Grant Street

Watch a building contractor and a librarian/writer, Yuppie scum who should know better, rescue an abandoned urban greenhouse in Buffalo, NY and launch an organic herb business

Shiny New Bridges

We interrupt our regularly scheduled and apparently notorious (as I learned at tonight's first ever Buffalo Blogger "Convention" at the Anchor Bar) blogging idleness to bring you a completely non-greenhouse link. Here are pictures of the new Grant Street bridges, less than a mile north of the greenhouse. I'm glad to see artists get work and aesthetics taken seriously, but pretty bridges do not alter the destructive effect that expressways have on neighborhoods.

    I'm pretty conflicted about the Scajacquada Expressway. While I'd like to see the portion between Elmwood and Parkside returned to a parkway, I'm mindful that thousands of West-siders need a quick way around and (unfortunately) out of town route.

    For many years I commuted from the West Side out to Williamsville. Without the 198 and the 33, I might well have moved closer to work. But maybe not.

    I can't believe that they were built in the first place, but now that they're there -- and people have made decisions to live here partly because of them -- would we be toying with our future to do away with either?

    I don't see the pictures of the bridges, are there pictures somewhere? I suppose I could take myself down there and look in person, but are there pictures?
