To most Buffalonians, “Elmwood” means not just a street lined with boutiques, restaurants, parks and homes, but also the many small neighborhoods on Elmwood’s surrounding blocks. There truly is a village-like feel to this lively community, where neighbors see each other daily as they shop, push baby carriages and walk dogs. The Elmwood Village is roughly bounded by Forest and North Streets.

The Elmwood Village residential blocks are generally densely built with wood frame houses. The architecture is often Queen Anne style, with its porches, pediments, gables and bay windows.

Just north, visitors can see Buffalo’s Museum District, with the world-class Albright-Knox Art Gallery; the Buffalo History Museum; and the Burchfield Penney Art Center, founded to honor Buffalo’s most well-known artist, Charles Burchfield.

As Buffalo’s oldest and largest preservation district, Allentown has some of the most historic and distinctive neighborhoods in Buffalo. Bounded by Main Street, Symphony Circle, North and Edward Streets, Allentown’s highlights include the oldest house in Buffalo (the Coit House at 414 Virginia, built in 1820), the magnificent Midway row houses on Delaware, the Tifft row houses on Allen, the Butler mansion, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site (Wilcox mansion) and many other Buffalo landmarks. The streets of Allentown contain a textbook of Victorian domestic architecture. Allen Street, the central artery of the neighborhood, is well-known as Buffalo’s Bohemia, a fun, funky corridor of galleries, shops, bars and restaurants.
