We love sharing the joy of biking. This fall, we're hosting mobile repairs and bike giveaways throughout Buffalo like this one at the Delavan Grider Community Center a few weeks ago.

Thank you to Independent Health for sponsoring our mobile repairs and the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation Youth Sports and Recreation COVID-19 Fund for supporting our bicycle giveaways.

We gratefully accept bike donations at our community workshop and at community events.

Fun facts about The Richardson Olmsted Complex as we continue to explore the letter "R"

🔸The Richardson Complex is a great example of adaptive reuse, which is the process of reusing an existing building for a new purpose, other than what it was designed for. This is one of the many examples of adaptive reuse throughout Buffalo!

🔸Perhaps owing to its past use, there are numerous rumors of paranormal activity at the property, including ghosts of former patients! These rumors have yet to be proven, however.

🔸A portion of the complex was used in 1983 as a hospital setting for the movie "The Natural", which was filmed in Buffalo.

🔸The building is designed in such a way that, when viewed from above, it resembles a flock of geese in a V-shaped flight
Buffalo is one of only two American cities to have examples from the "Trinity of American Architecture" - Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, and H.H. Richardson.

You Can Visit!
The Richardson Olmsted Complex and the 100 Acres restaurant, is open daily to visitors, though there may be some restrictions due to COVID-19. If you have never been to this building, it's worth a visit - both inside and out!

Have you been to the Richardson Olmsted Complex? Share your photos with us and tag #ExploreBuffalo so that we can feature them!

Thanks to City of Light Publishing for the Buffalo A-Z journey. We've enjoyed following along with their book "Buffalo from A to Z: Come Take A Tour With Me." https://cityoflightpublishing.com/product/buffalo-from-a-to-z-come-take-a-tour-with-me/

That's all for this week - be sure to check back next Thursday when we see what's going on with the letter "S"!
