Re: [BuffaloHistory] HISTORIC POLISH CHURCHES UPSET ABOUT CLOSINGS
- In the Buffalo economy you can raise money to pay the heating
bills for a struggling church or you can raise money to pay the
heating bills for struggling families but you cannot do both.
The church that cannot pay its own bills should not be expected
to pay others'.

"Everyone claims to want a city, but no one here wants city living. City living by its definition is crowded. It is tolerant of other people. It is dependent on a sophisticated population that makes a hundred compromises daily so that they can benefit from the collective energy that a city generates." --Robert N. Davis, Jr. (1955-2007)
- Christ Church was founded in 1886 and closed some time ago. There was a
fire in the church and it was torn down. The parish hall was all that
remained but that too is gone. My family attended there from the late
1880s (church opened in 1886) until the early 1960s. I went to the empty
parking lot a number of years ago and salvaged a piece of brick.
