Buffalo Landmarks & Attractions
I'd remove Erie County Fair, Darien Lake, Kissing Bridge, Original American Kazoo Company, Ralph Wilson Stadium, Artpark, The Falls, as they are not in Buffalo. Bicycle Museum? I'm not sure of where it is.

In Buffalo though, there is the newly designed Commercial Slip downtown, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaguation site, the Historical Society, the waterfront (and other harbors), the newly built Frank Lloyd Wright Boat House, the Darwin Martin House (FLW, as well), historical Freddrick Law Olmsted's Cazenovia Park & South Park, Botanical Gardens.

More to follow as I think of them

I just walked to to the top of the building and all around it. The central Courtyard is simply magnificent. The Ellicott Square Building in downtown Buffalo (1896) was the largest office building in the world for 16 years.

City Hall: you can go up to the top of the building any time and get a great view (in all directions) of Buffalo. Highly recommended.

Just went there and could see Niagara Fall's skyline and the mist, the wind mills, the southtowns, Big Blue Water Tower, All suburbs, Downtown skyline and citylife, and, on a clear day, you just might catch a glimpse of Toronto's CN Tower. You must see it to believe it!!! It's an amazing attraction being on the nation's largest, tallest City Hall. And word on the street has it that a City Hall Cafe will soon be making it's way into the observation deck. I would recommend walking up to the top. It's really not bad, and gives you a great workout! You can also see all sorts of rooms and such - it really is quite interesting!
