The Lafayette Hotel

Buffalo's Lafayette Hotel has been lovingly restored- resurrected, really- by developer Rocco Termini and a cast of thousands. No detail was overlooked; of special interest to us illustrator types, the lobby men's room features gorgeous reproductions of Gil Elvgren's masterful pinups. Bonus: A close examination of the print above reveals that a clever Photoshopper has edited the signature on the young lady's billet-doux- it now reads, "All my love, Rocco."
