NEW GROUP TO PROMOTE HISTORIC
EAST SIDE NEIGHBORHOOD
BUFFALO â€“ February 6, 2006 â€“ Broadway-Fillmore Alive announced its formation today. The group founded by three individuals with ties to the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood wants to promote, preserve and revitalize the area focusing equally on its historic past and on building its future.
Co-founder Christopher Byrd, â€œThere are many positives things happening in the Broadway-Fillmore area. The Central Terminal coming alive, St. Stanâ€™s continued success, Sr. Johnice and the Response to Love Center, the Broadway Market, Corpus Christi Church and the Pauline Fathers, Dyngus Day and so much more. We just want to spread the word to the rest of the region and bring people to the area.â€
The group sees a need to start promoting and marketing the Broadway-Fillmore area as a whole instead of pieces.
Christopher Byrd: Is on the board for the Response to Love Center and does volunteer work for the Broadway Market.
Michele Johnson: Is a community activist that helped establish the Anti-Flipping Task Force for Buffalo and is a Housing Court Liaison.
