they are not taking over the neighborhood, decay has long taken over that area, any improvements need to be commended, and not looked at as a "take over".

the increase in property value and the decrease in crime are both wonderful changes to the area. let's just hope it keeps happening.

These people around Mosque Zakariya Masjid are the most wonderful people I have seen. We need more Muslims in the Buffalo area so that we can get rid of crimes, murders, drugs and violence. This is a brilliant program that will bring prosperity, hope and richness to the trashed neighborhoods around this area. If you look at the drastic decrease in crime since Muslim population moved in, it is simply impressive. Crescent Village - All the way!!!
With best wishes,
Rick.

MashaAllah, these are the best people in Buffalo.
Hopefully, projects like these will make Buffalo's east side a better place to live.

I hate when people say "they are taking over"...
What do you mean they are taking over?
The neighborhood has been in trash for the past 30 years. Now when people help it become peaceful and beautiful, you say they are taking over? Enough with the complains...Lets be constructive and invite Moslems from all over WNY to this neighborhood.

It is very pleasing to see this initiative. I have witnessed this area, and seen the poor situation it has been in over the last few years. Masjid Zakariya's establishment and support of the community has been really beneficial in taking the area around it out of poverty, and build back a successful town.

I think this is a great way to build up property value in downtown buffalo. Its been a long time since downtown buffalo has seen some decent housing. Since the 1950's, all the rich folk went off to live in the suburbs, leaving the city without money, and letting it rot. I sincerely hope that this project will be a success and will benefit everyone.

May The Lord assist those who do good while they're here on earth. Great positive update on Buffalo's eastside.

It's quite amazing to see what has happened in this east side neighborhood in the past 10-15 years. From being a crime-ridden, drug-dealing area filled with more abandoned & decaying houses than houses that were lived in & being taken care of... it has become more of an "average" community. The houses are being fixed up, rotting houses are disappearing, and you see kids & students walking around everywhere. It's a delight to see the change!

"we need more muslims in the Buffalo area" are you for real - have you forgotten all about 911. How about the lackawanna cell a few years back. Yes, let's bring some more of these people into our country.

I don't think people are specifically stating that you need to bring Muslims to WNY from out of the country. They are referring to the more then 7 million muslims in the US. They are referring to those Muslim American Citizens who value family, and do not smoke, drink, gamble or involve themselves in drugs. Some of the best US Citizens in all of America. Islam is the second largest religion in the world and second in the US also. I think you should be greatful to the muslim community who has brought life back into the dark run down Buffalo towns.

If they didn't come from out of the country in the first place, where do you think they came from?

If the Muslims are so civic minded, why don't the people at this mosque get their grocery-store owning brethren to stop contributing the crime problem in this city and tell them to stop selling guns, drugs, and stolen property in their stores.

Have you forgotten Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kuscinski, and Bruce Ivins??? Are you ready to deport every Irishman, Polack, and Christian in America in retribution for those terrorist attacks?

The ability to reason is in such short supply in our society. Reminds me of the story about a Texan who hated Jews for sinking the Titanic... Iceberg... Goldberg...Steinberg.... whatever..

our freedoms were granted by the founding fathers of this country and no one in Iraq,Afhganistan,Vietnam,Korea ,Grenada or any other IDIOTIC war other than WW2 have ever tried to take away our freedoms, just more BS from an IDIOTIC government and just because you are a vet dont make you a " HERO" EXCEPT MAYBE IN YOUR OWN MIND, probably just another mindless flunkie that needs someone to tell them when to eat,spit,sleep kill whatever
