Common Council leads meeting on Towne Garden Apartments


BUFFALO, N.Y.- The Buffalo Common Council held a meeting Monday night about the future of the Towne Garden Apartments, which council members say has suffered from years of neglect.

The council says the owners, who live in New York City, have allowed the Clinton Street apartment complex to fall into despair, leaving residents with broken windows, sewer backup and other hazardous living conditions.

Council President Dareius Pridgen says he has been calling for changes at the apartment complex since 2011.

"We have had the owners here in Buffalo before, one of them looked me in the face and said basically said its like a Home Depot, if people don't like it they can find another place to live. That's not the attitude we want from landlord's in the City of Buffalo, especially multi-million dollar landlords," Pridgen said.
