Harry’s, a brand once known for their beautifully designed razors has steadily been expanding into other areas.
The Arrivals are embarking on their first ever design partnership as they’ve collaborated with design firm Snarkitecture on this limited edition waterproof poncho. Through the first half of the 20th Century, Buffalo was a major industrial and transportation center and a gateway to the Midwest. Like many cities along the Great Lakes, the central city of Buffalo began declining while its suburbs underwent expansion. After numerous studies, it was finally decided to build a light rail rapid transit (LRRT) system. By the time the studies were complete and the line was built, Buffalo had declined even faster than anticipated and the suburbs stopped growing. Be that as it may, Metro Rail is a relatively clean, safe and rapid way to traverse the 8 miles from South Campus to the foot of Main Street, generally in about 22 minutes during rush hour. The route of Metro Rail will be described as the train goes outbound, that is, out of downtown toward South Campus.
The front end of each platform on the downtown section is raised to a high-platform level, that is, to the bottom of the door on the cars.
After the switches, the train goes simultaneously over Amtrak (the downtown station is about two short blocks to the east) and under I-190; and, subsequently, under the HSBC (formerly Marine Midland) Building, the tallest in Buffalo. After Lafayette, the next station is Fountain, named for Fountain Plaza, a series of banks on either side of the street. The last stop in the downtown section is Theatre, which encompasses the one-block-long theater district of Buffalo. The cut-and-cover stations, Allen-Medical Campus, Summer-Best, and Utica, all have outside platforms and all have mezzanines one flight of stairs below street level, the platforms being one flight below the mezzanines. Between Amherst and the next station, LaSalle, one can see an alcove on the outside of whichever track one is on, pushing toward the outbound direction. The turn-out on the outbound side was to swing east of Main, between Bennett High School (where A Chorus Line author Michael Bennett took his name) and All-High Stadium (which doubled for Wrigley Field in The Natural) and then swing northwest, joining the railroad ROW and going over Main Street on the existing viaduct. Since the proposal, the following has occurred: first, the right-of-way to the west of Main Street is now a Park-and-Ride lot of 800 parking spaces adjacent to LaSalle station. Before arriving at University, we traverse another set of scissors switches and tunnel formations similar to that north of Humboldt. It is believed that the tracks extend perhaps a hundred feet beyond University station, and then dead-end.
The bus system in place essentially replaced the former streetcar system virtually route for route. The "central artery" of this system would be built first, from UB's South Campus (which is located in the northeast corner of the city), to downtown via Main Street.
Generally, the trains run on what appears to be their own right of way in the middle of Main Street. On the sidewalk adjacent to the outbound platforms are automated ticket machines for rides outbound.
The downtown baseball stadium, currently named Coca-Cola Field (formerly Dunn Tire Park), is seen one block to the east.
The main branch of the library is seen one block to the east; Niagara Square and City Hall are seen a few blocks to the west.
Shortly after the station, the train begins its descent under Main Street into the cut-and-cover section. The layout of this station is the same as all the bored tunnel section stations except Amherst, described later.
This station served as the northern terminus of the line until the remaining two stations were built shortly thereafter.


This was to be the location of the "Tonawanda turn-out", one of the proposed extensions to the system.
Second, the viaducts over Main Street (there were two---the more western (inbound) viaduct would have been the ROW for the extension) have been taken down. Elevator passengers have to switch between an elevator from the station house (at street level) to the mezzanine and then a different elevator from the mezzanine to train level. The tracks are actually east of Main Street at this point, several stories under the grass of the UB campus facing Main Street.

At first look though, it does seem a bit easier to read and we can credit that to the minor color changes.
In order to bolster the declining downtown area, it was believed that suburbanites had to be lured, whether for work, recreation or shopping.
The right of way is distinguished by the fact that a 3 inch curb is present between the outside of the rails and the rest of Main Street, which is a pedestrian mall, currently dubbed "Buffalo Place." Metro Rail trains can be a maximum of 4 cars in length, though normally 2 car trains are run, 3 cars for special events or rush hour.
Generally, ordinary traffic lights control the right of way between intersections of Main and the various cross streets, but the lights are "rigged" so that Metro Rail only waits for them to turn green while in a station with the doors open. On the outbound side is M & T Bank, which owns the former Buffalo Savings Bank "golden dome" headquarters, while on the inbound side there exists a beautiful fountain which is used as an ice skating rink in the winter. The Allen-Hospital station has a "rear" exit to Washington Street for easier access to the two hospitals that are located a few blocks further east. The platforms for the inbound and outbound trains are separate, but on the inside, much like 14 St on the 6th Av IND.
One station entrance is on the southwest corner of Main and Humboldt, while the other is on the southeast corner. This extension was to run along a former Erie-Lackawanna ROW that essentially traveled in a straight line from Main Street through the Town and City of Tonawanda and the City of North Tonawanda, until it intersected with the Amtrak ROW. It is hard to determine what the cost would be in displaced private property for the actual turnout, but the rest of the line was considered the least expensive extension to the system.
The station house is in its own building on the west side of Main, surrounded by a bus driveway. The station is one very long flight up the escalator, and is by far the largest in plan area in the system. In 2008, the operations of MTA Bus Company and NYC Transit were merged into a new regional operation, MTA Regional Bus Operations. These main streets were planned by the founders of Buffalo, particularly Joseph Ellicott, to fan out like spokes of a wheel to the north, east and south. It was proposed that a rapid transit system be developed to link key suburban sites, such as the airport, the new University of Buffalo north campus, possibly Niagara Falls, and the rapidly growing South Towns, with the downtown area. Whether or not it was a direct result of the construction or operation of Metro Rail is debatable, but it certainly was not the desired effect; however, the general consensus among business leaders and politicians has swung to this way of thinking. If two 4 car trains, one in each direction, were in one of the downtown stations at the same time, it would appear that the two outside platforms were aligned; however, since 4 car trains are almost never run, as well as the construction style of the platforms, as described below, it appears that the inbound and outbound stations are slightly staggered, with the outbound platform north of the inbound platform. A wheel chair ramp, as well as a short set of stairs, come off the outside of the platform down to street level.
Tickets are used as valid transfer mechanisms to buses that stop at the various Metro Rail stations. Alongside the outbound platform is the M & T Building, which is rather set back on the street. The transition point between the cut-and-cover section and the tunnel section was beset with water problems during construction. There are generally two passageways between the two platforms where one platform can see the other.


There were also major streetcar routes that partially encircled the city in ever-widening rings. Accordingly, plans are being made to re-introduce automobile traffic to Main Street to encourage the “return of retail” to the downtown area. An overhang, to protect passengers from the weather, extends from the front of the platform down the station for about the equivalent of a car length and a half. The first regular station is Erie Canal Harbor (formerly "Auditorium") and is the official southern end of the revenue section of the line. In the early days of operation there were always workmen on the tracks and trains in either direction would sound their horns as a warning.
Amherst is different from the other stations, as it has one island platform, higher ceilings, and brighter lighting. The "front" exit to the station is leads to a large cul-de-sac carved out of the grassy area of the campus between the main roads in and out of the Main Street campus entrance. 8 on Main Street at various intersections to the north, would terminate at Metro Rail stations, or cross Main Street and become one of the cross-town routes. On July 23, 2012, specific plans for the block encompassing the Theater station and the portal to the cut and cover section were announced. This station is used inbound for one hour before and outbound for one hour after events held at the HSBC Arena, which is just to the station's east.
The rest of the platform is marked by a slightly different shade of concrete along the curb. Since most inbound trains turn around here (rather than returning or coming from the barn), the train can end on either track. A suburban-style shopping mall is alongside the inbound platform on the other side of the street. The station entrance lies on a triangular piece of land bounded by Main, Amherst Street and Parker Avenue, around which three bus lines will stop. Currently, 9 bus lines, some going to the suburbs, have their own little waiting area on the cul-de-sac.
To enter the train at street level, a passenger can depress a button on the side of the cars. The entrance to the Delavan station is a building at street level on the northeast corner of Main and Delavan.
One and a half campus parking lots further outbound of the exit road from campus have been converted to 600 Park-and-Ride parking spaces.
This will be completed by September, 2013, and the next block south will begin being converted at that time, until all of Main Street down to the waterfront is completed.
In the "back" of the station, an elevator takes one up to the level of the campus buildings.
The overhang and supports have an "old time" wrought iron appearance, and are painted a hunter green. Manages transit, buses, subways, trains, bridges and tunnels in New York City and surrounding areas including Long Island.
