Grant Boulevard, at Butternut Street. Photo taken 1 June 2002.
Just up the street, at Grant Boulevard and McChesney Park Drive, is this vintage street sign. The McChesney sign is the older sign, as it uses the Interstate/Blue Highway font. Very attractive; we wish the city would still use this style of font on its signs. Photo taken 21 April 2003.

Signal manufacturer,
university town and then some …

Western New York owes a debt of gratitude to the de facto capital of Central New York. Many of the traffic signal units used in Western New York were manufactured by Crouse-Hinds until 1983, when that company spawned its successor company, Traffic Control Technologies.

Oh yes, the city has its share of distinction—Tipperary Hill, where the green light is situated OVER the red light, instead of the other way ’round.
