This documentary is a glimpse of Buffalo’s historic architecture and the ongoing disagreement between those for and against preservation. The protagonists in this documentary will be antagonists to each other, and with their various motives and ideas on preservation, they will come head-on in a fight for the existence (or non-existence) of Buffalo’s great architecture. In the lives of normal everyday people, you will see that anyone and everyone can make a difference.

Buffalo's Main Street was the topic of Squeaky Wheel's BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE in 2006. A collaboration between Squeaky Wheel and Preservation Buffalo Niagara, the BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE is a youth media and community history initiative which gives up to 20 young people (age 13-18/8th-12th grade) from Buffalo, NY and surrounding areas the opportunity to learn about the history of their local community by making documentaries about Buffalo. The project starts in September and ends in June and has been funded by the John R. Oishei Foundation, the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, the Baird Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
