Gorgeous piece of old Buffalo, but with a really dark past. While it's worth visiting the grounds for some pictures, it's absolutely worth taking advantage of their occasional tours through the building, so be sure to call ahead before visiting.

Whenever I give someone a tour of Buffalo, this is always on the list. It's a really tall and beautiful old complex. It's also really awesome to see at night because it's all lit up and looks really ominous. I heard they are turning it into a hotel, which should lead to some interesting encounters given it's history.
