Don't you mean Irish? South Buffalo isn't only Irish, it's flamingly Irish. (if that's a word)ROCguy said:...I got to say I find south Buffalo sort of "charming" it still holds it's ethnic polish identity stronger than most immigrant sections in NYC ever did.
I don't think that's Polish, though I don't know for sure. When I think of the old Polish neighborhoods, I usually picture the whole slice of the East Side between William and Genesee. I usually drive Potters at least once a week, there's nothing too defining about the neighborhood, at least that which you'd notice just passing through. I know the most die-hard Irish portion of South Buffalo appears to be the Abbott-South Park-McKinley area (Heacock to Cazenovia Parks). Just drove through there about 45 minutes ago in fact. Irish flags far outnumber American ones in that area. I'm part Irish, and I know my mother's side of the family used to live there, now they live on Kirkwood in West Seneca, immediately outside the C/L (which is more "city" than "suburb").ROCguy said:Ok, I'm talking of geographicaly south Buffalo, like Potters; McKinley Parkway that area. That's not Polish? I swear on my life you could practically taste the peirogies in the air when going through that area.
