Enjoy the Tranquility of a Yuletide Tour At Frank Lloyd Wright’s Graycliff

Ahh, the calm of Graycliff, a short drive but a world away from the stresses of the holidays.  Graycliff was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright specifically for the relaxation of his patrons, Isabelle and Darwin Martin.  Today, visitors can unwind with a leisurely tour, and enjoy Graycliff’s festive holiday décor amidst the magnificent architecture. Free hot chocolate (and some candy canes, too!) is served at the conclusion of tours, and Graycliff’s Pavilion gift shop has lots of choices to fix any lapses by Santa or Hanukkah Harry.  You (and your out-of-town visitors) will enjoy a bit of relaxation amidst the holiday bustle.
Weather permitting, well trained docents will lead tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Graycliff Estate on Wednesday, Dec. 26, Thursday, Dec. 27, Friday, Dec. 28, Saturday, December 29, Sunday, December 30, and Monday, December 31, 2012.  Both Basic, one hour tours and In-Depth, two-hour tours are available each day.  
Reservations are required; please call 716-947-9217 or email graycliff@verizon.net.  Please see our website at graycliffestate.org for more details.

Oh Paul Buffalo s still alive and stalking the politically incorrect gentiles.

I guess you pulled up your pants and came out of the backrooms of Castro district of SF to tell us gentile here in Buffalo how we have it all wrong...and just in time for Christmas.

I guess you would have done it sooner but a gay Jew celebrating the miracle of oil during hanakuh in SF probably kept you on your back most of the time

ChristieLou, great ideas. Hey, maybe you could demolish the Guggenheim in Manhattan then have a new one built in Buffalo.

What are the bets for the next Frank Lloyd Wright project here in Buffalo?

The lLarkin District was planning FLW Row houses....that could be interesting addition to Buffalo.

I don't care if was a never built design or a built but demolished design...so long as Buffalo infills with world class design.

I think many would like to see the Lark in Admin on the table. Its Buffalo's equivalent of the Johnson Wax.
