Graduated in 1966 and moved out of Buffalo to the burbs. Great memories of Miss Ralph in 5th & 6th grade where I met kids from all over the city. Gertrude Gol and Mr. Bartholomew for music/band, wow, what a throwback. Sad looking neighborhood these days. Used to have a Courier Express paper route in the neighborhood going all the way over to the train terminal, which I still visit hoping for a comeback.

A real trip back down memory lane...I attended PS #44 from 1956-1965 (K-8). Everyone who attended lived within several blocks; it was a relatively safe, working class neighborhood, and kids walked to this great school to learn from wonderful teachers who honestly cared. For nine years or so it was our whole world and an alternate family of close knit friends, after our real family. John Barrett was principal.

Broadway Street had a great choice of stores ranging from camera stores, surplus stores, and mens, womens or children's standalone specialty clothing shops not to leave out all the memorable European immigrant-run food stands at the Broadway Market near Fillmore Ave.

And of course, Sattler's the queen anchor department store located at 998 Broadway...

Would love to make contact with one or more classmates whom I sorely have missed over the years ! George_M. (email:)

I went there from 5th grade through 8th grade, until 1973. The school was in transition, but was still a nice neighborhood place. I remember the stores along Broadway. No longer live in Buffalo. I imagine it is quite different now.

Me, my three older brothers, my younger sister, our dad, and my two uncles all went to School 44 (or, "Lincoln"). I went there K-8, 1976-1985. We lived a block away on Peck St. We played in the concrete playground in the back. I belonged to the Ranger Rick club that planted the little tree near the door on the right. Bells supermarket was across the street. We moved away from the neighborhood in 1985.
