Street View 


St. Paul's Cathedral-- a key architectural landmark in downtown Buffalo-- serves as visual anchor for the south Main Street area. It is flanked on the west by Sullivan's Prudential Building of 1894-95 (NY-5487), and on the east by D. H. Burnham's Ellicott Square Building of 1895. With new commercial buildings rising above it to the north, the Cathedral and its surrounding park create an open, low-profile, pedestrian space. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS NY-5612)
