Our son was married last weekend in an intimate and lovely ceremony in Buffalo, New York. Mark and I arrived there on Thursday and spent time on Friday touring the harbor area of this riverfront town. I’m going to do a series of three posts for this trip so as not to inundate you.
On Thursday we just walked through Allentown where our son lives. With a little help from Wikipedia I’ll briefly acquaint you with Allentown.
“Allentown is the first neighborhood north of the Downtown Buffalo core. It borders the downtown theater and entertainment district to its south, and runs north to North Street at its northern edge, Plymouth Avenue on the west, and Main street on the east. The neighborhood is generally centered around Allen Street and Elmwood Avenue.”
“Allentown is known for its community of artists, for its embrace of bohemian, hipster and gay culture, and for the civic commitment of residents to the historic and aesthetic sensibilities of the neighborhood.”
“Allentown is one of Buffalo’s premier areas for nightlife, dining, and antique shopping.” Wikipedia
And on a street corner, the bubble man sends out bubbles to passers-by, showing the true spirit of Allentown.
Next up—the Lighthouse on the Outer Harbor.
