APT, the World Monuments Fund, the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation and the Buffalo Architecture Foundation (BAF) invite you to a “Welcome to Buffalo Party!”
The Art-Deco-style Buffalo Central Terminal opened in 1929, a time when Buffalo was one of the largest and most economically vibrant cities in North America. Located away from the central business district, the Terminal never reached its full capacity and hasn’t seen a train since 1979. The World Monuments Fund named it to its 2018 World Monuments Watch and the State of New York just announced a $5 million grant to restore the concourse. APT, the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation and the Buffalo Architecture Foundation (BAF) invite you to a “Welcome to Buffalo Party!” You will be able to choose from tours of the remarkable terminal, food trucks for dinner, a local craft beer and wine reception, a special 6 Minute Building Stories (6Mbs) program sponsored by the BAF featuring 6-minute presentations by esteemed speakers and even a late-night Ghost Hunt!
(This is event is part of the "Queen City Pop-Ups" for 2018. Buffalo got the nickname “Queen City” at the turn of the 20th century for being the second largest city in New York State and its most prosperous. Today, with Buffalo undergoing a remarkable architectural and economic renaissance, primarily due to the adaptive reuse of historic buildings, we would like to offer APT conference-goers unique opportunities throughout the conference to experience Buffalo’s world-class architecture and hip culture. Pop-Ups are free to attend, offering out-of-the-box fun, events. Be prepared to be wowed! (Pop-Ups will not provide continuing education credits.)
