Broadway and Rother Street (google map).

IMG 1443

Entire blocks of Broadway Avenue's commercial and retail fabric have been demolished during the past decade. Buildings disappear one at at time.  1172 Broadway is next and was recently known as Mazin Deli.  The pattern is the same. The bulldozer razes the street's vernacular architecture and the significant structures of Buffalo's historic Polonia neighborhood disappear into the landfill.  There is no plan.
