Per the event website, Garden Walk Buffalo is a self-guided tour of more than 380 gardens, one of the largest garden tours in America. It occurs annually the last weekend in July. It started 20 years ago as a couple of neighbors getting together to encourage neighborhood beautification and to promote community pride. The boundaries extend almost 5 miles.

Here are some pictures from the few hours I spent roaming around last weekend. The pictures I took are more focused on some of the architecture than the gardens.

Great looking houses. I wish I could have seen Buffalo in its heyday. There must have been thousands of gems like these. Thanks.

My Grandmas house in the first ward was one of those little brick cottages. We have them here in Rochester. I want to buy one and restore it. My Grandmas was small on the outside and huge on the inside. It had a wood burning stove in the kitchen and the coolest sink. I have very fond memories going there as a kid. Great set....

It's funny how desirable those remaining old workers' cottages are today, when back then they were probably some of the lowest class housing. I think most of them on the East Side were torn down.

My loft is worth twice what I paid for it. I am not sure how that is possible. But anyways. I have been looking for a cottage around my current hood here in Rochester. I found one in a up and coming neighborhood. But I couldn't pull the trigger. It was sold for 55K. I walked by it last month and it was incredible. You snooze and you lose....

I think those stone cottages are pretty exclusive to WNY and Southern Ontario? In Columbus Ohio and Toledo they seem to be made mostly of wood? Am I right about that?
