Buffalo Stoplight Fanatic Gets Green Light, Begins Blog

Crouse

By Mary Kunz Goldman

Encouraged by Buzz, traffic signal expert Ryan Lysarz has begun his blog about traffic lights.

This isn't any blink-and-you'll-miss-it thing. He plans on writing regularly about the changing Buffalo signal scene, and apparently he has enough scholarship to carry him for years.

The first couple of posts show Ryan seeing red over the missing signal that used to be in front of Holy Name of Jesus Church on Bailey Avenue, and discussing what he calls the single most significant traffic signal intersection in Buffalo.

Definitely a blog that can be talked about on the street corner! As well as when you are stuck in traffic with nothing to do. Ryan has been studying traffic signals since he was 4. For the uninitiated he offers a primer on how to identify various models of traffic lights. That is a Crouse-Hinds Art Deco classic in the photograph up above, a photo he took on Grant Street.

OK, enough introductions. Ryan, you have the green light.

Go!
