    Information from the Community

    On June 15, 2019, many of downtown Buffalo’s most significant buildings will literally open their doors to the public. Whether it’s your first time touring downtown or if you’re a seasoned Explore Buffalo tour-goer, this will be a unique occasion to see downtown as you’ve never seen it before: beyond the doors! Discover areas of buildings not usually open to the public and access to floors with a birds-eye view of our beautiful city. AND IT'S ALL FREE!



    The NYS Historic Tax Credit was expanded as part of the NYS budget. This now means that considerably more properties in the neighborhood are eligible for the credit. Apply here!

    Unfortunately the Vernon Triangle and the homes around Medaille College are not included but the PCA has been working to expand the designation to include these two parts of the neighborhood.
