Eyesore or monument? Preservationists fight to save a grain elevator in Buffalo

Published January 22, 2022


The New York Times quotes Gregory Delaney in a story about the fight to save the Great Northern grain elevator in Buffalo, possibly the last grain elevator of its type in the world. “These were the kind of cathedrals of the modern age,” Delaney said, noting the elevator’s unique blend of function and technology. “It’s a building that is at the same scale as a great medieval cathedral, with a similar kind of monumental power.”
