John and sister Cathy;lived on bissell in the 60's.remembering walking to church and then school,got out for lunch,walked back and then home again.Heart broken when I visited in 2004 and saw how our old neighborhood looks now.Thank you Karl for the beautiful picture of our beloved church.
I have to agree with both people on this post about St. Matt's. I lived on Stevens Ave for about 7 years and St. Matt's was my parish. The homes were beautiful...and beautifully maintained. I ride by my house on Stevens periodically...and am happy that my parents never saw it like that
I guess it's best my grandmother & grandfather are no longer around to see what has become of their beloved St. Matthews and their neighborhood. Their house on Zenner St. was so well maintained with a beautiful rose garden in the backyard. These pictures bring back a lot of wonderful memories.
It's so sad to see churches vacated. This church is now completely abandoned and the grounds decimated. The neighborhood is nothing short of a combat zone with residents who take no pride in cleaning up their neighborhood.
How sad Buffalo has become. It looks more and more like Beruit.
