I concluded:


So many of those things that caused the trouble for cities like Buffalo, like suburban sprawl, the private automobile and air conditioning, are looking less and less tenable every day. What our Great Lakes cities have to prepare for is a reverse migration, to attract people back to cities like Detroit and Buffalo.

And indeed, while at the National Trust for Historic Preservation's conference in Buffalo, that is what I saw, a rebirth and revitalization of a city that I remembered very differently. Old industrial buildings were being turned into lofts, you could eat off the floors of the bus station, the streets were clean and the people just couldn't do enough for you.
