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.

Ghost hunting at the Central Terminal


BUFFALO, NY - Halloween is only a couple week away and you don't have to look very far to get spooked. On Friday night, the Central Terminal began hosting a series called "Beyond Ghosts."

Those who take part will get to explore the abandoned building on candlelit tours, while attempting to scare up some ghosts.

Not only do you learn the history of Buffalo's grand but faded Art Deco train station, there's even equipment to help people make contact with the alleged spirits of the dead.

The event's organizers claim to have personal experience of ghostly encounters in the abandoned corridors and empty rooms of the terminal building.

You can buy tickets for the ghost tours online at the Beyond Ghosts website. Money from the event helps in the restoration of the Central Terminal.
