September is the season for great in-depth tours of the Buffalo for architectural and history aficionados and the people who love them. 

We start off with a well-researched, revealing and fun tour of 1950's suburbia given by Campaign for Greater Buffalo Executive Director Tim Tielman. Download his paper How Green Were My Acres: Builders, Designers, and Buyers in an Atomic Age Suburb, 1946-1956. Download Tielman, Green Acres narrative 2 That tour departs from in front of the Plaka Restaurant on Delaware Avenue in Kenmore. A monument to 1960's design, it was formerly Watson's Restaurant (the candy store is still operating next door as Watson's). Before that, it was the Alcobar. Have breakfast there beforehand or lunch afterwards. Or both!

The next day, Sunday the 11th, city planner Chris Hawley, who may know more about the Belt Line Railroad and its adjacent neighborhoods and industries than anyone, is leading a tour of this fascinating wonder that continues to operate today.
