A few other notes: Near the Sullivan building is a wonderful church. Can't dredge up the name of the architect offhand, but it was someone prominent in the late 19th Century. Keep in mind that Kleinhans was the work of Eliel Saarinen; I believe Eero worked on it, but it is mostly his father's design. Eliel is one of the most overlooked designers of the 20th Century. There is a very simple Lutheran church in Minneapolis near Powderhorn Park that is absolutely masterful, on a par with FLW's work. Also, while in Canada, there is a wonderful Chinese restaurant, one of the best I have ever been to, that you should not miss if you like Chinese food at all. Anyone in Buffalo can give you directions; it's quite well known.

Eliel Saarinen's work in Finland is also absolutely wonderful. While searching for Alvar Aalto's Studio in Helsinki, I stumbled across a well designed school that was quite striking. Later I learned that the architect was Eliel Saarinen.
Our firm does a lot of religious architecture. Two of the top five best examples of religious examples architecture in the US were designed independently by Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero in Columbus, Indiana.

The church is St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral designed by Richard Upjohn in 1849.
