    The doors open! Come on in!

    The first floor had/has a floating ceiling that covers up how cool the interior really is. Taking the second set of stairs that aren't decayed to death, you head to the second floor with an amazing vaulted ceiling with views of the exterior crosses beaming in light.

    Cool find, finally over there on Jefferson, but the risk of pitt bull bit or gunshot wound is rather high.

    "For the last four years, the Sacred Sites staff has worked with the congregation of Greater New Hope Church of God in Christ in Buffalo, a local landmark. With the help of a Conservancy consulting grant, the congregation funded a much-needed engineering report in 2001. Despite the severe deterioration of the building’s roof, dome, and cornices, this report noted that the building still has a sound roof framing system. Working with the Conservancy and the Preservation Coalition of Erie County, the congregation took this news as an opportunity to temporarily stabilize the roof and cornices until they can raise the funds for a more extensive preservation project. This summer, the Conservancy awarded the church a $10,000 grant to complete the stabilization."

    "The Greater New Hope Church of God in Christ is housed in a Moorish Revival building, which is capped by a large dome and was designed as a synagogue in 1903."

    "The Jefferson Avenue Shul's official name was Ahavas Sholem Synagogue. The building, which is the Buffalo area's oldest standing former synagogue, was constructed in 1903.....The congregation was located at this site just north of William Street between 1892 (before this building existed) and the late 1950's."
