I was checking out that Ellicottville fire tower on CalTopo's hybrid satellite/topo map and noticed it's on an east-facing slope. Might check it out after the leaves come off the trees, around sunrise, on a day when the school isn't in session. If for whatever reason I'm not able to go up the tower, I could always salvage my day in McCarty Hill State Forest, Little Rock City, or Allegany State Park.

While not technically a fire tower, the Oak Orchard Lookout Tower in northern Genesee County offers decent views to both the west and east. I would imagine it's a nice spot to watch the sunset on clearer days than this.
