The Campaign for Greater Buffalo's Open-Air Autobus is offering food for thought at Larkinville's "Food Truck Tuesdays" on August 6, 13 and 20. The tours last one hour and depart from Larkin Square, Seneca and Emslie streets, at 5:30 and 7:00pm.
The "Full Steam Ahead" tours invoke both the railroad era that gave impetus to the area and the current revitilization. They are offered in conjuction with the Larkin Devopment Company. Cost is $20: all proceeds benefit historic preservation.
In addition to the vast complex of the Larkin Soap Company and its historic Hydraulics neighborhood, the tour will traverse the neighborhood known as "The Valley" to view the mammoth Concrete Central Grain Elevator, the largest ever built in Buffalo. Commentary by architecural and historical experts continues at Central Terminal and its ongoing restoration project. Heading back to Larkinville, the tour will pass the Sahlen Packing Company, where Buffalo's most popular hot dog is made, and the former William Simon Brewery.
