Ruth Johnson opened a neighborhood diner here in 1995 in a well documented struggle to purchase the property from the City of Buffalo. The Buffalo News covered the story here in November 1995 and the sale a month later here after two local attorneys provided their assistance.
Currently the property is NOT listed on the City's website as a city-owned property that's available for sale. It last sold for $2500 almost 20 years ago. 1363 Sycamore Street is currently being monitored by Preservation Ready Sites as a property at High Risk. Here the details.
If you are interested in taking a closer look at 1363 Sycamore please contact the City of Buffalo Division of Real Estate.
