Oakland Place:
Gracious Living in Buffalo

By Martin Wachadlo
Photography by Chuck LaChiusa
120 pages

Only one block long, Oakland Place is one of the Buffalo's grandest avenues. Having never been a through street, it remained insulated from the radical changes that transformed the city during the Twentieth Century. This helped the traditions of good and gracious living by the city's leading citizens to last longer here than in most other areas of the city. It also led to the development of a close knit community of decision-makers who greatly influenced many aspects of Buffalo over many decades. The introduction summarizes the development of the street and how it changed over time, and describes how the residents lived. This is followed by a house-by-house look at the street, highlighting the exterior and major interior features of each home and providing an introduction to the early owners. This photographic essay reveals an elegance and grandeur not always associated with Buffalo.
