A few weeks ago at the Buffalo Central Terminal car show, I met a man who volunteered at the station and he encouraged me to join the group involved in (slowly) restoring the building, so I did and just before I left was treated to the view in the video above.
I found an eclectic group of individuals at the Terminal – mostly older and retired men, but a couple of younger guys too (but the group changes week to week) – they all shared a love for the building. Learning from them even for just a couple hours was so valuable and interesting. I imagine, that like the majority of the other volunteers who started 10-15 years ago, I too will fall in love with the place and return whenever I can in the years to come. The hard work and determination shown by this small group gives me hope for the building and the city of Buffalo; I’m proud to be a part of that effort.
