Carrying on my adventures from my first weekend over the ocean, the snow unfortunately made some spots more risky than was normal to go in (the fear of leaving footprints for cops to follow ever present) so me and my Stateside companions fell back on a couple of less risky places to finish the weekend off.

Alongside the Central Terminal and Silo City, Buffalo Malting Corp. is one of the most instantly recognisable abandonments in the city of Buffalo, visible from one of the main arterial routes through Buffalo up to Niagara Falls it is very hard to miss even for those not interested in derelict spots. It won't win awards for being the best place ever but it had some nice decay and some really great views of the city from the roof, which must be even better at night.

Built in 1925 with one silo for Kreiner Malting Inc, it was extended in 1936 with a second silo bringing it to a capacity of 180,000 bushels. It was purchased in 1975 by Buffalo Malting Corp. who closed the facility in 1986, and it has sat empty ever since under ownership of the state.

A very decent concoction of stalactites, glass and rust there! Never heard of this place, but looks awesome!
