Few neighborhoods were provided the pedigree of the ‘Parade’ area of Buffalo’s East Side: an Olmsted designed park and parade ground, and a perimeter lined with beautiful period homes, all linked to Delaware Park via the 200 foot wide Humboldt Parkway.  These elements created a prestigious area that provided the new middle and upper class with their piece of the American pie.

While the latter half of the twentieth century was not kind to this area, its pride and grandeur perseveres. On this walking tour, we will promenade along the ‘Parade’ routes and discover this historic part of Buffalo.

Meet on the the front steps of the Buffalo Museum of Science at 1020 Humboldt Parkway. The front steps, no longer used as the main entrance to the Museum, face north toward Humboldt Parkway.
