Neighborhood Heritage Site in Danger: Chopin Singing Society Building

[nggallery id=192](click images for full view)

On the day the Chopin Singing Society was performing at the group’s 135th Annual Concert, I stopped by their former home at 18-24 Kosciuszko Street.  As you can see from the photos, the property is in terrible shape.

This property served as the society’s home for over sixty years until the 1990s.  It is the place where Buffalo’s modern Dyngus Day celebrations were born.

Looking at the building now, you know it is in danger.  It is only a matter of time before the structure reaches the point of no return and the wrecking crew will have its day.

This structure and others are on a growing list of heritage sites in the neighborhood that are in danger of being lost forever.
