Some old buildings need a little love too.
Around Christmas in 2012, Bernice Radle of Buffalo’s Young Preservationists got the idea to put a big red bow on a nearby vacant building to spread holiday cheer. Then it occurred to her to do the same with a heart-shaped cutout the following Valentine’s Day. Thirty people helped Bernice place giant hearts on four vacant buildings, and thus heart bombing was born. Today, three of those buildings are still standing and two have new owners — a testament to the power of showing places (and their communities) that someone cares about them.
We here at Dey Mansion are proud to showcase our love for historic sites and want you to join us in doing the same! Spend the afternoon with us creating valentines to Dey Mansion and your closest friends!
