I can't think of where this house is located, anybody have the location? Thanks

Using my not-so-mysterious powers of internet research, I find that this is 233 Lathrop Street. The pole with multiple insulators (in the background) told me it's near train tracks (which it is) .. Nice old elm tree, in front! Someone should gather its seeds or take cuttings, to see if it is resistant to Dutch Elm disease.

I am not sure what a Bad Chimnet is. It looks like the tree decided to take over the house, it at least messed up the front porch. David I have a question. I was trolling around your flickr page and noticed some pictures I had never seen before of 16 harwood, posted in june. I was curious if these were new pictures, or ones that were just never uploaded. Anyway thank you for uploading them. It's such a great little house.

Jaclyn,

Those recent 16 Harwood pics are new, interior shots from June.

David,

A house you may want to check-out is located just east of the train track overpass on Kensington Avenue (between Sisters Hospital and ECMC) that is constructed of field stone with an interesting lion’s head at the peak of the front gable.

It is occupied but has seen some “revisions” but remains an interesting piece of construction.

Your must of had this photo in your inventory!

I was taking an alternate route back to the office when I spotted this house.

I always wonder what the significance and/or history of such places are and am amazed at the number of such buildings throughout Buffalo.

Thank you. I fell in love with that house when I first saw it last summer. I was and still am hoping that someone can do something with it. For me it was one of those situations where the second I saw the house I knew, I knew it was special, it was important and I knew that I would love for it to be mine. A friend of mine had a similar feeling about a house on Manhattan Ave, even though everything needed to be fixed she just knew that it was her house. I'm not in the financial situation to be able to go after the house. Thank you for at least being able to save that home in memories and photographs.
