Description   EN   

Today Niagara Square is surrounded by government and commercial buildings. But in the early days it was a desirable residential address. One of the central squares of Joseph Ellicott's original design for Buffalo Village the City of Buffalo has grown up around it. Today the square is home to a monument to President McKinley, who was assassinated during the Pan-American Exposition in 1901. It is in the shadow of Buffalo City Hall.

Just a quick walk a few hundred feet from work at lunch time... Now let's see if I can find a few more of these downtown soon

With the new Froggy cache nearby, I thought I'd take a stop over here to grab this one and maybe a few more. Pretty dead downtown today, which is sort of surprising considering the Garden Walk is this weekend. TFTC.

3433.  Got one of the few good parking spots and made a quick find.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Yep, still there during the Taste of Buffalo. Predictably, there was a couple sitting within 3 feet of it. I could see it, but really had to investigate further to see the code. They seemed like a nice early 30's couple, so I walked right up to it. They said "excuse us", and I said Oh, I'm just looking at this thing there. Don't steal it or anything! (with a smile) They may or may not have checked it out closer after I left, but I went back almost 2 hours later, and it was still there, as I was sure it would be. Definitely a nice historic location for a BIT, thanks for placing it.

Number 18 of 22 for the day. Weekends would be the best time to plan your tour. There is plenty of free parking in the general vicinity. I have never stopped to look at any of the monuments in Buffalo. Thanks for giving me incentive to vist. SF7
