Nestled into the Parkside neighborhood not far from Gates Circle is an architectural masterpiece that Buffalonians and visitors treasure.  Legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Prairie-style buildings that compose the Darwin Martin House complex at 125 Jewett Parkway. The buildings, now owned by the Martin House Restoration Corporation, reopened for tours earlier this year after extensive renovations, though work is still going on.

Every Labor Day weekend, folks from all over flock to Buffalo for the National Buffalo Wing Festival, a tradition since 2002. The festival celebrates one of Buffalo's signature dishes—hot chicken wings, succulently fried and coated with a special sauce. According to the event's Web site, the festival was inspired by the 2001 movie "Osmosis Jones." In that movie, which mixed live action and animation, Bill Murray is a gourmand whose ambition is to attend the fictional Super Bowl of junk food—the National Buffalo Wing Festival.

Buffalonians love their trees, and citizens have proven over and over again that they are willing to fight for them. The city is graced with more than 68,000 trees in public rights-of-way and parks, and many more line the streets and grow in people’s yards. Trees provide shade, beauty and wildlife habitat, and support healthy soil, air and water. Buffalo’s urban forest is part of the Niagara River corridor, a globally significant bird area. Trees create the serenity that is so essential to relieve the stress of our busy lives. Just gazing at greenery relaxes and cheers us. Trees suck up stormwater, produce oxygen, and reduce air pollution and soil erosion.  Overall, they provide a better quality of life.

Some people keep on working for financial reasons, but others are delaying retirement because they like working. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 30 percent of people 65 to 69 were still working in 2010. That same year, people 65 and older comprised 16 percent of the workforce. Those numbers are expected to grow in the coming years.
