There was a time when Buffalo had a sound, a heart beat, of thousands of steel workers humming along. The sound was the Buffalo region creating the backbones for buildings across the USA.
The last remains of this heartbeat lay sleeping but are ready for new life. The last remains include the beautiful Bethlehem Steel Office Admin building that we may lose THIS FRIDAY.
DO YOUR PART = SPEAK UP. CALL. ASK. BEG. CONVINCE. PERSUADE.
It is NOT too late.
There are creative solutions for this incredible building that do not include demolition.
Steel is a part of all of us. We are blue collar, hard working, tough and sassy Buffalonians with a big heart. We deserve to have the Bethlehem Steel Admin building shine for years to come. Please, do your part and call the owners. It is not too late!
Tomorrow, call Steve Detwiler at home at 662-1555 or at the office at 826-7310 to voice your displeasure over the demolition of his Beth Steel building.

If you have a minute, check out this interview that was published by the Center for Energy and Environment. I am very happy & thankful that they wanted to interview me about the work I do in historic buildings and energy efficiency at Buffalo Energy. For me, I think it is exciting to see more love and promotion out there about Buffalo, NY!

When national bloggers come to Buffalo to learn about our grain elevators – it’s a big deal.
Chris Hawley and Chuck Banas took Max from the Urbanologist blog around last weekend to see the potential, the excitement and the DIY grain elevator art movement that is transforming how we view the grain elevators in the Queen City. This is a BIG DEAL. Buffalo has a lot of grain elevators and we have started to really embrace them. And it’s not just the younger generation that cares, people of all ages come to the grain elevators in Buffalo to experience these sleepy gentle giants.
