Finishing Touches...

Last August I spotted a construction crane here in the neighborhood at the site of the newly expanded Church of God in Christ on Woodlawn Avenue near Jefferson. Check this out for construction progress.

Well this congregation has come along way. The new sign is in place, corner stone is installed and the finishing touches on the church's new entrance are about complete.
What a difference a year makes. I've planned a longer post about the 10 churches in this 25 block neighborhood Main/Jefferson - Ferry/Utica, that I'm still preparing. If you are a Minister or a member of one of these churches please get in touch, I'd like to talk with you about some neighborhood issues.

The most influential minister in the neighborhood, Rev. Richard Stenhouse, from the Bethel AME Church, Michigan & Ferry, is also on Buffalo's Control Board. In March, the following article appeared in the Buffalo News about Rev. Stenhouse - Getting it Done in Masten! Rev. Stenhouse has also planned a new set of row houses for Michigan Ave across the street from the new tennis courts (YES) and the church's Michigan Avenue entrance. Personally, I think the design should be alligned with the other row houses here in Masten and incorporate a Mansard roof instead of the pitched roof that's planned.
