(By Christina Abt, AM-Pol Eagle and WNYmedia.net) This is the third in a series of Broadway Market at the Crossroads interviews. This week the series focuses on two men who are on a mission to not only re-envigorate the market, but to re-invent the historic neighborhood surrounding it.
Marty Biniasz and Eddy Dobosiewicz are lifelong friends. The two spent the 1970’s and 80’s growing up in an East Side Buffalo neighborhood ethnically branded as, Polonia. Their childhoods were defined by Polish foods and traditions served up around architectural landmarks such as Corpus Christi and St. Stanislaus Churches, The Central Terminal and The Broadway Market. It is a shared life experience that has bonded the men with a passionate dedication to “re-inventing” their once vibrant childhood neighborhood. It is also a passion that, at times, makes them lightening rods of distrust and resentment among those equally devoted to the same cause.
