My name is Angela Keppel. I am a history enthusiast, Buffalo booster and urban planner. I am a lifelong Buffalonian who grew up going to concerts at Lasalle Park, exploring the ships at the Naval Park, celebrating Easter at the Broadway Market, going back-to-school shopping with Great Grandma at AM&As, and spending time in an old building owned by my uncle at the corner of Broadway and Michigan. I attended opening day at Pilot Field and I still think the orange seats at the Aud were the best place to watch a Sabres game.
I’m fascinated by Buffalo’s history. As an urban planner, I’m very interested in and excited about where we’re going as a City; but, I think it’s also important to look back and take pride in where we’ve been. I have a B.A. in Political Science from Niagara University and a Masters in Urban Planning from the University of Buffalo.
I’ve spent the last decade working in urban planning in Buffalo/ Western New York and am a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. I currently work in Downtown Buffalo as a Project Planner with Buffalo Place, Inc. To connect with me professional, please add me on LinkedIn.
In addition to this blog, I also give lectures on a variety of Buffalo history and architecture topics. Contact me if you’d like to have me speak to your group.

Due to time constraints, I can’t always reply to every single message I get, but I do appreciate them all. Often, if you don’t hear from me it’s because I was unable to answer your questions and/or that the information is forthcoming on an upcoming blog.
