Standing guard

While waiting for the fireworks on the University of Buffalo North Campus, I walked down to Baird Point to have a closer look at the repurposed greek architecture. The ionic style columns are actually from a former Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Buffalo. Rather than heading to the landfill, a philanthropist with vision saw the value, and the "ruins" ended up here.

The actual podium was closed off to the public and a police officer in bullet-proof attire was watching over the crowd as were a number of his associates from various vantage points around the park and lake... signs of the time I guess.
