BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) Ardmore Place in Buffalo is only one-block long and is located behind Lafayette High School.
The City of Buffalo recently started work to repave the street, and crews began scraping off the old asphalt surface which revealed parts of an old cobblestone brick road that appears to be in good condition.
"It is very quaint and gives the street character," said resident Stephanie Masiello.
With roughly forty homes on Ardmore Place, many residents are now asking the City to stop the paving so it can be determined if the old cobblestone street can be fully uncovered.
"Residents of the street started seeing it and we all started talking and thought 'gosh' wouldn't it be nice," said David Kane.
The West Side street is located in Common Council Member David Rivera's district.
According to office staff, the Niagara district council member was planning to meet with residents and tour the street in person.
Rivera's office also said they contacted Public Works Commissioner Steven Stepniak about the possibility of delaying the street work until the cobblestones can be checked more thoroughly.
"And it would be nice to have something like this from the past into the present again," added Patty Lupke.
Since the street is located by a school, many residents say having the cobblestone uncovered could be a big benefit.
"The cobblestones may actually help slow down the traffic and keep it at a reasonable and safe level," commented Jim Weidemer.
