Exterior of Shea's Center for the Performing Arts, Buffalo, NY.

Opened in 1926 and recently the object of a major renovation and restoration effort, Shea's Center for the Performing Arts is the jewel in Buffalo's theater and performing arts crown. The recent restoration was completed last week when the giant sign pictured here, reading "Shea's Buffalo", was installed and lit for the first time. The original sign was missing from the front of Shea's for many years, and in fact, the lighting of the new sign marked the first such lighting in over half a century.

That's Buffalo for you: we may be coming back slow, and we may be coming back one lightbulb at a time, but we're coming back.
