Brick cottage from the 1870s on LIttle Summer Street.
Another brick cottage from the 1870s on LIttle Summer Street. Bright colors are the rule rather than the exception.
Next door to #2.
Here's another one on Little Summer.
A friend's restored 1830s home on Johnson Park. Johnson Park was Buffalo's first suburb as it was an upscale enclave with larger homes built on large lots (for the time) isolated by some distance from the crowded, noisy central part of the boomtown that was Buffalo in the 1820s-1830s thanks to the Erie Canal.
Another Johnson Park home from the 1830s. Johnson Park is a U-shaped street with a large park-like space in the center.
This is actually a new-build (probably 1980s) built on Cary Street off South Elmwood, which is in a neighborhood called The West Village. It's literally just steps from downtown.
This stately brick home is on North Pearl Street in the Allentown neighborhood, directly north of downtown Buffalo.
Another North Pearl Street home.
This large wooden Victorian is also in Allentown.
The side yard of a more modest Allentown home. Notice the curling old asphalt singles. This is probably a two family home, with the single story in the back added on at some point.
A Victorian front stoop on a home near Symphony Circle.
My favorite Victorian! It's off York around Grover Cleveland HS.
A restored/renovated cottage on York Street.
Another frame Victorian charmer.
This is another modest frame Victorian. This one is a two family (frequently called a "double" in Buffalo), as evidenced by the door and the awning framework on the upper porch.
Gaudy paint schemes and front yard gardens are becoming increasingly common on Buffalo's West Side. This home is on Ketchum Place near York.
A less bright paint scheme on a home on Ketchum Place, but non-traditional still.
