Operating as usual


A recent fire in a home on Benzinger St.
Displaced a family of 6 and sent toxic fumes into the Closed school 43 next to home.
The fire melted windows on the school and caused the school to close for 2 days.
Even though the home was demolished and the asbestos abated the location of the drop off and boarding point for the busses has been moved to the Gold St. Entrance till the demolition crew removes the equipment.
Maybe a good idea for the reuse of the property might be a Victory Garden for the School.


Notable people

Carl Paladino, developer, Republican gubernatorial candidate in the 2010 New York State election, defeated by Andrew Cuomo. Originally from Lovejoy, he later relocated to South Buffalo.


Iron Island

Iron Island is a popular nickname of Lovejoy, due to the fact it is entirely, or almost entirely, surrounded by train tracks (Tracks run along William Street, Broadway, many go through the Buffalo Central Terminal, and across William Street). The area also has a CSX building located on N. Ogden Street.



There are many parks in the Lovejoy area, including Hennipin Park, the main and largest park including a recently redone community center, Davey Park, and Moreland Field.



There are many churches in East Lovejoy, although many of the Catholic churches underwent closures. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo decided to close two of the churches due to economic issues, and rename the church they kept open, as well as getting a new pastor. The three churches, Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Agnes, and Visitation, were closed, and the Saint Francis building is used under the new name Saint Kathrine Drexel with pastor Rev. James M. Monaco. There are many other non-Catholic churches, for example, the Evangelical Baptist Church, located on Longnecker and Ludington Streets, Immanual Evangelical Lutheran located on Lovejoy and SS. Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox church on Benzinger. The Trinity UCC closed in 2010 because of lack of parishioners. The Old German Evangelical Church built in 1883 under the name Trinity UCC on Gold St. has been purchased by Spirit of Truth Urban Ministry in 2010 to be its world headquarters at the East Lovejoy Campus on Gold St. It is now a diverse Apostolic Non-Denomination Church led by Senior Pastor Al Robinson. They are also responsible for the "Jesus on Blast" evangelical movement in western New York.



PS #43 is the primary school in the East Lovejoy area and many living in the area attend. It has architectural and significant history. Started in 1831 by Joseph Churchyard, the man who owned the land, the school created an annex on East Lovejoy and Benzinger Streets. This school is the current school #43. Built to accommodate 600 German children living in the area, the school had 49 classrooms, two gymnasiums, a cafeteria, and other features. In 1926, the amount of students attending was 1,662. Recently, the school underwent a 56 million dollar construction project that created another building connected to the old one, in place of the old parking lot. PS 43 is one of the Buffalo Public Schools.

Another school that was located in Lovejoy before its close in 2009, is St. Agnes. It did not have enough money to pay for the school and thus closed down. It was in Lovejoy for over 100 years. It opened in the 1800s.

My boyfriend Mike Riccione and I lost all of our belongings and our home in the apartment fire that happened last month at E. Lovejoy and Gold. We've been staying with a family member and have already been here longer than we hoped. We were hoping the apartment would be fixed fast and we could move back in within a few months but insurance/permits/etc. have really slowed the progress down. We have been searching fb marketplace and craigslist daily but haven't had any luck. We need to be out by the end of May at the very latest. We are looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment in the area $700 or less- we can go slightly higher if it includes gas/electric/cable/etc. We can provide bank statements with proof of funds and pay 3-6 months rent in advance if needed to show we are serious and will be reliable tenants. We are really beginning to get desperate so any leads would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
Anyone need shoveling done?
So as a die hard...... who am I supposed to be rooting for? I heard it all week on the radio at work. I was appalled when I heard how many Bills Fans said the Bucs. Are we BILLS MAFIA or no? Wth? Am I just overreacting? I HATE Brady. I never want to see him win.... EVER. Especially in the game that rules them all. Maybe I was raised different.... any advice for a member of the true Bills Mafia who just watched the Chiefs whoop us 2 weeks ago?
