“Buffalo, America’s Best Designed City”

On Tuesday, October 1, 2103, local filmmaker John Paget will be premiering his latest Buffalo documentary in Larkinville. I met with Paget, a West Coast transplant, back in April to discuss the the city and all of the new and exciting directions that it was going in… and all of the people who were contributing to making the turnaround happen (today there are a lot players focusing their energies on Buffalo’s rebirth).

Six months later, the ten-minute documentary is complete and a trailer has been released that shows how the filmmaker, along with producer Visit Buffalo Niagara, was able to capture some seldom seen aerial imagery that will comprise powerful segments of the video. Paget also enlisted the help of a series of activists who discuss the city’s new beginnings, and how its world class design (still intact for the most part) will be the backbone of a continued renaissance.

What: All of Western New York is invited to the free public premiere of a brand new short documentary that tells the story of Buffalo and its world class design. To read more about the film, visit www.bestdesignedcity.com.

Who qualifies as a VIP?  Should the rest of us just show up at 7?

Love the opening of this film, brief as it is. The way the light glows off the Liberty Bank building and the streaming water shooting from the fire boat are among the best shots I've ever seen of Buffalo. I'm looking forward to seeing the entire film.

The saddest thing is that no architect or urban planner could or would design these magnificent places. Not the buildings of various periods. Not the parkways. Not the streets or bridges.

Now how could we be turning out the best and the brightest to design our cities and suburbs of the future when they cant emulate the best
