|999 Broadway, Buffalo, NY 14212|
"As immigrants flocked to the east side of Buffalo in the late 1800's, they looked for the continuation of old world customs in their new and unfamiliar environment. While they wanted to enter the mainstream of city life, they also sought to preserve their Eastern European traditions and heritage. The Broadway Market would prove to serve these needs quite well.
Started by a group of citizens on a city donated parcel at 999 Broadway in 1888, the Broadway Market quickly became a community meeting place—a place ideal for combining business with socializing and for sharing with one another the latest in gossip and news from the old world."1
