Little Summer Street has the most picturesque cottages in the city.  Built in the 1870s  by English immigrants, the charming cottages of Little Summer Street create a neighborhood truly unique in Buffalo. Explore this and other streets off “The Avenue,” the Olmsted-planned street now known as Richmond Avenue, and enjoy an interior visit at the Karpeles Manuscript Museum in the former Plymouth Methodist Church.
