Central Terminal decays as board delays


BUFFALO, NY - For years, the Central Terminal suffered from willful neglect at the hands of its private owners. While the building lay open to vandals, artifacts were stolen and metal pipes stripped out.

When the non-profit Central Terminal Restoration Corporation took ownership in 1

997, the hope was that the group would halt the building's deterioration and find a responsible developer to secure its long-term future.

But the building is still deteriorating. And dysfunction in the Restoration Corporation's board of directors has hampered progress in preserving and redeveloping it, former board members have told Investigative Post.

"There's so many different things wrong with the building, the damage is astounding," said former board member Paul Maurer.
