Neighborhoods  /  Humboldt-Ferry

Encompassing the East Ferry and Humboldt Parkway area, and the streets of East Ferry, Woodlawn, Wohlers, Roehrer, Glenwood Ave and Crestwood.

Overview

As the East Side began to decline, young first-generation American Jews moved uptown and northwards to the Humboldt Parkway area and Ferry sections of the city. This section of the city has tended to be overlooked when documenting the broader history of Jewish Buffalo.

The records of Temple Beth David and The Humboldt Orthodox Center suggest a rich Jewish life in this area, however, we have limited records for Temple Beth David and Humboldt Orthodox and we have no records for the three synagogues: Ohav Zedek (Hungarian), Ohel Jacob and Tifereth Zion, except for a few clippings.
