One thing about older cities, like Buffalo, is the architecture . . . and it's stunning. When you walk down the street and see this building, most people just say WOW. The true beauty is actually inside. It is open to the public, so go in and look around, you will be amazed !

The is one if the great landmarks of Buffalo. The detailing is extraordinary. I don't believe that the interior is generally open to the public, although they have the occasional open-house.

Well worth a visit, even if it's a little out of your way, just to get out and take a look. It doesn't sound like you can just wander in or do a tour, but I'd love to if there was ever an opportunity. It's really a beautiful building, in an area with a lot of other architectural gems. The... More

Hard to explain what it's like to stand in front of a masterpiece. Life keeps going, cars are parked, the city is exactly the same, but this building stands in all its splendor, speaking of beauty but also of history and the evolution of technology, the history of this country, and the power of a great individual mind whose unique...

Didn't actually get to go inside, but observed it via the Buffalo Tours downtown tour. Amazing structure with such intense and in depth art work well worth the $10 cost of the tour.

Gorgeous facade, so intricate. They do 't make buildings like this any more. Should also check out the Ellicott building nearby, too. Another beauty, and it is easier to get into, with public space and places to buy a snack and sit down.

This building is awe-inspiring, to say the least. We couldn't get inside, but that didn't matter. It was included on a walking tour of Buffalo architecture; after the tour, we came back to look at it some more. Take your time admiring this classic building.

There is an sign on the side of the building with a bit of information about the architect: "Prudential (Guaranty) building architect, Louis H.Sullivan, called the father of modern american architecture early all-steel frame office bldg. with fine terra cotta...
