Multiple commercial buildings, including a three story structure on a corner parcel
Demolished. Empty grass lot. Also lost are the trolley lines shown on both Main and Allen in the historic photo.
- David Steele: "This corner once held a very interesting set of buildings that were allowed to sit empty and rot for several years until the city ordered one of its infamous 'emergency' demolitions. The Buffalo News reported at the time, that Commissioner of Inspections, Joseph Schollard, and four of his staff found the buildings to be in 'total disarray.' This was reason enough to get rid of buildings that could not ever be replaced."
