Visiting the Decorators' Show House? Here are some parking options

Before setting out for the 2017 Decorators' Show House opening this weekend on the Medical Campus, you might want to plan your parking strategy.

That is especially true Saturday, when the Women & Children's Super Hero walk to the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital site also is going on.

The tightest times – at least in terms of parking – to see the August Feine House at 766 Ellicott St. could be weekdays when the 120-acre campus is abuzz with workers, patients and families, particularly during the daytime. But weekends and evenings should offer a bit more latitude in finding a place to park when going to the house event sponsored by The Buffalo News and Junior League of Buffalo, running through May 21.

The Junior League recommends these spots for parking:

- Daytime parking at the Michigan/Goodrich parking garage at 134 High St.
- Daytime parking in the underground parking garage at High and Main streets beneath the Conventus medical and research building at 1001 Main St.
Both lots charge for parking.
- Metered parking also is available along Ellicott Street and is free at 5 p.m. and on weekends.
- Evening and weekend parking is available for free at the Buffalo Medical Group parking lot at 85 High St.
- There also is parking in the surface lot at 589 Ellicott St. during evenings and on weekends.
The 7,800-square-foot Feine home is the future site of the Russell J. Salvatore Hospitality House on the Kevin Guest House Campus. The home was built by John Iribacher in 1888 and purchased by Feine in 1906. Feine specialized in ornamental iron latticework and examples of his work are evident throughout the historic home.

Event parking is coordinated by the Junior League. People may want to consider public transportation, as well.

"We certainly want to encourage people to take transit and drive with their friends," said Susan Kirkpatrick, Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Inc. communications consultant. "If there's an opportunity to take the train down, or ride your bike, we always encourage that."
