"A street with abandoned houses is a street waiting to rise again, such is the case with e. delavan"

I am a proud lifelong resident of the city of buffalo.

East delavan avenue is the home to our old sears store, the store i went to for school supplies before they had the big box stores. We used to walk to sears from where we lived on the west side and it was an area of homes with big families. The neighborhood was not as scary and in need of rehab as it is now.

East delavan is also the home of Seneca vocational high school that was attended by both my husband and his father (they are the only father/son team to graduate from seneca!). They taught the gentlemen (no females here until court order before they finally closed down) vocations - mechanics, electronics and all manner of "guy stuff" that would and still does serve them well in their older years. They shut old Seneca down but there is now talk of reopening it because there is still such a need for this sort of learning.

East delavan avenue needs much, as all inner city streets does, but i have hope that as time comes and goes that it will be the proud street that it once was and the people who still reside there won't be thought of as frightening.

"We are the Indians mighty mighty Indians"

E Delavan is home to my high school Alma Mater. Seneca Vocational. This a very nice street. Not a lot of crime. There is also a large plant on E. Delavan that houses many automotive workers. There's a McDonalds and a KFC in case you may feel a little hunger pains and a great little Caribbean store that sells the famous patties everyone loves. The Erie County Medical Center which is the major hospital of the county is about a block away. There also residential homes on E Delavan.
