Press Pass: Buffalo Spree "Game Changer" on historic preservation
This month's issue of Buffalo Spree profiles Western New York "game changers" -- 24 local movers and shakers who are shaping the "new" Buffalo. One of them is Dana Saylor-Furman, an historical researcher who is involved in building preservation.
Saylor-Furman joined Buffalo Spree Editor Elizabeth Licata for this week's Press Pass with WBFO's Mark Scott.
Two threatened buildings in the Buffalo area have been in the news lately. A judge removed the last obstacle that was keeping the city of Lackawanna from demolishing the old Bethlehem Steel administration building off Route 5. Meanwhile, there's a new plan for saving at least some of the Trico Building in downtown Buffalo. We address both issues with Elizabeth Licata and Dana Saylor-Furman. Licata says demolition of the Bethlehem Steel building could happen any time now.
