Mayfair Lane

A small cobbled lane on which Buffalo’s first condominiums are ranged. To step into this alley is to take a brief stroll in a Cornwall market town or in medieval Dijon. Ornate hinges, stucco, intersecting roof-lines, diamond-lit windows, stick and quatrefoil designs all belie the 1928 construction date of the complex. Most unlikely is the entry of No. 21 Mayfair Lane. Flanked by a Tudor tower, a chained draw-bridge is overhung by a parapeted and gated medieval arch, the whole of the entrance marked by typical post-gothic embellishments: crests, quatrefoil tights and lions as grotesques. The fantastic unit was designed by Edward Green to accommodate the needs of his son, who was crippled.
