Here at Three Stone Steps we’re awash in a relatively early shipment of recycled, fair trade dreidels and getting our holiday wholesale orders together, but on our way to Western New York to deal with some family issues last week, we did manage to visit an inspirational site or two.
Today’s photo is from the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, home of the famous early Women’s Rights convention.
While there’s something of a debate as to whether Baltimore, the location of Three Stone Steps’ worldwide headquarters, is in the rust belt (I’m of the firm opinion that it isn’t, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it’s not a post-industrial city), there is no doubt that Buffalo is.
For this Labor Day, I’m sort of happy sort of sad to present you with photos of the magnificent Central Station in Buffalo, from a city that has seen better times. Here’s hoping that it–along with the city and all cities–will be reinvented into great, and green urban hubs.
Happy Labor Day.
your establishing shot
would be nice if the trains still ran here
your way out.
what time is it? time to restore our cities.
This was shot almost exactly a year ago from where I watch the fireworks (or, I should really say where I would watch the fireworks if I didn’t have a dog that totally flipped out when they’re going off.) The view’s from a rowhouse in southeast Baltimore.
If you’re into fireworks, hope find a great spot for viewing, and have a great holiday.
the bird is ready.
