Traditionally Irish-American, the neighborhood retains its hardworking Celtic flavor in area restaurants, churches, corner taverns, and social clubs.
Cazenovia Creek, a tributary of the Buffalo River, winds through the neighborhood and the beautifully landscaped Cazenovia Park, part of the renowned Buffalo Olmsted Park system. Businesses are primarily restaurants, with an abundance of traditional bars, taverns, and pizza parlors. Mercy Hospital and Trocaire College are important commercial and community centers.
The Lofts @Abbott are located across from Mercy Hospital on Abbott Road, one of the neighborhood’s main commercial streets. In the vicinity are restaurants, shopping, civic institutions, the newly built Solar City and technology park along the Buffalo River.
