BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Street art is a cool new addition to the hip scene on Allen Street.
Restauranteur and developer Mark Goldman is the driving force behind the Allen Street Street Art Collective.
The collective has brought street artists from around the country here to Buffalo to paint buisnesses on Allen.
Goldman says he's been working to bring street art to Buffalo for a long time.
"I've been aware of street art for a long time. My brother Tony was really influential in New York City and Miami in bringing really good street art to those communities. And this is a year since he died and I wanted to do something to memorialize his death and to recognize the power that art can have in transforming streets," said Goldman.
You can see the street art on Goldman's Allen Street Hardware Café at the corner of Allen and College, and on a market down the street.
