Poooof….in a cloud of demolition dust, one of the most familiar buildings on Broadway is gone FOREVER.
1163 Broadway was the home to the famous Polish Village and in its later years Shadracks Nite Club…it went quietly….I didn’t hear about it until a phone call a little while ago. I didn’t even know it was on the demo list. (click for location on Google Maps)
It sickens me…it breaks my heart…with all the buildings in the neighborhood in much worse shape than this, it doesn’t even begin to make sense to me.
What a joke…what an awful joke!
This building should not have been torn down…that is the bottom line….this is a whole HEAP OF FAIL and indictment of Buffalo’s preservation plan.
