Six Standout NYS Sporting Venues

Despite the autumn-esque weather we've been having here in Buffalo, the summer season is upon us and with that comes summertime sporting events! Working in an Architecture firm has taught me to appreciate the buildings these events actually happen in, not just the events themselves. Here are my findings for the most inspiring sporting venues that our home state has to offer:
