Long Description:
The Connecticut Street Armory was built in the late 1890's as a replacement for an armory near downtown Buffalo. It's been home to the 74th Regiment of the New York National Guard since then. Today the facility is still used for training and drills for the Guard. The large drill hall has also had concerts held in it.
