Buffalo tattoos are not as uncommon as you might first think. Posted on the urban planning subreddit the OP wondered which city was tattooed on this man’s arm. Commenter trainmaster611 uses his powers of deduction to come to the conclusion:
“The radial street plan over the street grid is indicative of American cities in the midwest and the Great Lakes region. Because the city is on the water, that narrows it down a lot. However, because America is positioned on the southern side of the lakes, every American city of this size is positioned so that the lakeshore is either to the north or to the east of the city, except for one — Buffalo, New York.”
Currently, the Buffalo River is undergoing a $44 million cleanup from its industrial past restoring life to the water and its shores. The cleaner river will run alongside the new sustainable neighborhood that is being planned for the 200 acre brownfield site. This land reclamation project will include a large waterfront plaza in addition to over a mile of public waterfront access. The neighborhood will include energy efficient buildings powered by solar and wind, adding to Buffalo’s current large wind-turbine count as well as adding new smaller wind turbines as well. If successful, RiverBend will be a national model for rebuilding brownfield areas to sustainable living neighborhoods.
