    Hi from Buffalo

    I'm new here. The info. here is very interesting. I'm not in Planning - I have a Marketing/Retail degree from Syracuse University and I work in Property Management for a nonprofit.

    I love to see modern homes and buildings as well as well-preserved historic areas. I'm interested in renovation and revitalization and what it can do for a city or a neighborhood. I like to wander around my city, and when I travel I like to walk or drive around and explore other cities.

    Welcome from the Florida panhandle during the extended evening cocktail hour. But be careful for the playa who calls himself "The One." That one is bad apples.


    EDIT: BTW Al, we thought we lost you.....

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Welcome from just another Hoosier.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from sw michigan! (Okay, that wasn't a terribly original post but at least was sincere if nothing else)
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Welcome from NW Ohio. If you get a chance, drive through Toledo. You will find that it is a small version of Buffalo. Lots of similarities.

    We look forward to your posts.
