Buffalo NY - Kaisertown

The Kaisertown neighborhood of Buffalo is centered around the intersection of Clinton and South Ogden Streets, about 4 miles (6 km) east of downtown. Once part of the Buffalo Creek Reservation, by 1838 the Senecas deeded the land to Thomas L. Odgen and subsequently divided and sold to farmers and developers of the neighborhood. The majority of the early farmers in the area were German immigrants, and by the 1890s Poles and Hungarian immigrants joined the community. The neighborhood continues to be a very tight-knit working class community, with several active Catholic Parishes.

Cardinal Wojtyla (later Pope and then St. John Paul II) stayed at St. Casimir's Church in 1976 during his Buffalo visit.

Nice pictures!

I had no idea that Pope John Paul II stayed in Buffalo! What church was that at? Did he stay at the rectory?

He stayed at St. Casimir's Rectory and performed Mass at the church in 1976 when he was still a Cardinal. He also visited earlier, in 1969, and stayed at the St. Stanislaus Rectory. Buffalo and Krakow maintained close ties at the time due to its large Polish immigrant population (one of my grandfathers was from Krakow).

I'm not familiar with telescope houses, is there a specific reason or tradition with this configuration?

These houses typically began as small workers cottages on narrow lots without basements, many dating to the mid-late 1800s, and as families grew the homes expanded one section at a time over several decades.

Most of these types of homes are in the East Side neighborhoods, especially close to the Central Terminal. Newton Street, for example, looks very nondescript in street view, but an aerial view shows nearly every home with 2,3, or more additions onto the back. The oldest home on this street dates to 1840.
