Went to restaurant #2 and it is a nice place to get a meal, with soul classics playing in the background. Nice service and people as well. Had the Pulled Chicken Dinner scattered over Rice and Gravy with a Cornbread muffin, which was pretty good.

Here is a map from the 1956 Negro Travelers Green Book that shows locations across the country, with some locations in Upstate NY on the map: The Negro Travelers' Green Book, Spring 1956 - University of South Carolina Libraries


The actually book: The Negro Travelers' Green Book :: Negro Travelers


Here is the 1955 edition, which mentions places in Upstate NY on pages 41-43: https://issuu.com/dafiyab.benibo/doc...r_s_green_book


The Travelers Green Book was a travel guide that was created due to Jim Crow and the growing Black middle class. Many of the locations are travel destinations, travel houses(many times the private homes of Black/African American residents), as well as hotels, gas stations, hair salons, barber shops and restaurants that would serve Black patrons. These were usually suggested by people based upon their personal experience and were verified by the Negro Travelers Green Book. Upstate NY locations such as Bath, Mechanicsville, Jamestown, Glens Falls, Lake Placid, Lake George, Watertown, Niagara Falls, Utica, Saratoga Springs and the 4 major cities are on this map. More about this former travel guide and its creator, who was a native New Yorker himself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ne...ist_Green_Book


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_H._Green


This 1947 edition includes a night club in Ithaca(the Forest City Lodge on 119 North Tioga Street) and a few establishments in Lackawanna. it also makes mention of newspapers that served the community, with a mention of the Star of Buffalo and the Progressive(Herald) of Syracuse as the only Upstate NY newspapers. There is even a listing for a Chinese restaurant in Buffalo in this edition(Kam Wing Loo at 433 Michigan Avenue): NYPL Digital Collections
