Before and During...900 Genesee Street.

Mike Miller just sent this in. 900 Genesee, last May. Oh, you'll be hearing alot about this neighborhood [quikmap]. Reminds me of my own, where Michigan and Main Street do the triangle thing.

We learned this morning from Rootsweb.com that A. L. Weber's was a furniture store, back in the day.
I have an old payment book that shows my Grandparents buying furniture from A. L. Weber 900-906 Genesee St. Buffalo, NY.
Mike started blogging awhile ago - Shades of Gray - and is also one of the driving forces behind the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation. He contributes frequently to Broadway Fillmore Alive and put this cool video together featuring some of East Sides treasures. Love the sound track.

Saw this excellent video featuring Buffalo News writer Mary Kunz Goldman on Youtube, next to Mike's. Big Mary fan. Still love the Buffalo News article from October 2002 describing varioius aspects of the drug bust here at 900.

On your way to the Central Terminal, stop by and fall in love with the finest streetscape in Buffalo. Wave to Darren, he's the mason working the building's exterior.
