Amen!

Beautiful video . . . just the image Buffalo needs to project right now. The city's population is roughly half that of 1950. Despite some painful losses to Urban Renewal in the '60s (Google "Erie County Savings Bank"), Buffalo's remaining architecture is some of the nation's finest.

Last one about Buffalo, my home town. Winston has treasures as well. We need to make sure that they are preserved.

The 52 storey JPMorgan Chase Tower (formerly the Union Carbide Building) at 270 Park. Ave in Manhattan is slated for demolition.

It will be the tallest building ever intentionally demolished in the nation's history.

JPMorgan Chase plans to build a 70 storey tower at the site.
