Named for Polonia

Broadway-Fillmore (formerly known as Polonia) is a neighborhood in Buffalo, New York.


Broadway-Fillmore is in the lower East Side of Buffalo. The neighborhood is centered along Broadway running West-East and Fillmore Avenue running North-South.


Broadway-Fillmore was once home to a large Polish/Eastern European population in Buffalo. The neighborhood has long since fallen into poverty and disrepair due to the "white flight" to the suburbs in the mid-late 20th century, although it still enjoys a brief renaissance every Easter due to the local Easter celebrations and Dingus Day.
