Biography of James Mooney


Mooney, James, Buffalo.-There are few more progressive and prominent business men in Buffalo than James Mooney, and none who has been more enterprising or energetic in bringing to the city her wonderful later-day growth and prosperity. He came to America from Ireland with his parents when he was a boy, and has resided in Buffalo since 1850. He began the study of law with the late Charles D. Norton, esq., but soon tired of that profession and engaged in the real estate business. Mr. Mooney has long been the half owner of the Arcade block on Main street, corner of Clinton, and the magnificent business block on this site, which has just been completed and which is known as the Mooney & Brisbane block. It is one of the most imposing and attractive of the many large and elegant buildings which in the past few years have transformed the business part of the city, making it thoroughly metropolitan in appearance. Mr. Mooney was one of the commissioners of the State Park Reservation at Niagara Fails and has served the public with intelligence and efficiency, and in official station, as in business life, be has ever inspired the fullest regard and confidence of his fellow-citizens.
