Back at Flintkote with the UR UrbEx. I’m still amazed we made this one happen, with Andrew on it and all!

More giant machinery here

The destructed ruins of what was once a relatively grand train station on the way to Niagara Falls. It was already closed for decades by the time it burned in 1974, and now only the brick and stonework somewhat remain.

More fire damage… we probably could have brought this steel mill down with our hands.

Some deranged protest… Lockport was left out of the Interstate highways, and someone wasn’t happy? I guess?
Thruway

So many rusting bikes. It’s incredible these are still here!

The iconic Buffalo Central again. We picked a very bad day to go here, with today being Easter Sunday, everyone, including the politicians and dignitaries, was on hand yesterday for the final preparations for Dyngus Day. Apparently when someone starts shouting “City property! You better get out, I’m the mayor!” sometimes it actually is the Mayor. Go figure.

Anyone have any idea what these glass things are about?

While we were on the roof of the Malt taking advantage of the birds’ eye view of our last location, this happened:
Sandy

Yes, it’s a real live sandstorm. No idea where the sand came from, it’s not even blowing in off the lake. After another minute or two it completely swallowed up the rest of the view. We didn’t stay long enough to see if it stung, taking shelter until the dust died down… What a mess! Is this normal for Buffalo?
