Portion of Washington Street Named in Memory of Business Leader Stuart Hunt

By Tiffany Matthews

Buffalo, NY – City of Buffalo officials Thursday paid tribute to business and civic leader, Stuart Hunt, who died last September. A portion of Washington Street near Lafayette Square will now be called "Stuart Hunt Way."

Dozens were on hand at a ceremony to re-name a stretch of Washington Street in memory of the late C. Stuart Hunt. The real estate leader served as chairman of Buffalo Place for many years. Hunt was known well for his tireless dedication to revitalizing downtown. Mayor Byron Brown says that Hunt was a great figure in Buffalo and deserved recognition for his work.

Part of Hunt's legacy to downtown was his help in the development of the weekly summer event Thursdays at the Square.
