history of Jamestown as well as the influences on the city’s development
patterns. More than 100 buildings and sites, with maps for walking and
driving tours, are outlined in detail.
Lombardi graduated with a B.A. in environmental design from the University
at Buffalo and a master’s degree in city and regional planning from
Rutgers University. Prior to joining the JRC he was a researcher at UB’s
Regional Institute and an adjunct instructor at UB’s School of
Architecture and Planning.
