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.

Crews demolish run down home on Clark Street


BUFFALO, N.Y.- Crews were at work Wednesday tearing down a dilapidated house on Clark Street in Buffalo that nearby residents complained was an eyesore on the neighborhood and housed drug dealers and homeless people.

Residents, who had been calling for the home to destroyed since August, also said the house was on the verge of collapsing.

"My biggest thing was the house was demolished and taken care of before anyone ended up dead and the taxpayers would then have to pay because it would fall on the city," Sophia Wroblewski, a nearby resident told 2 On Your Side.

In August, a city official told 2 On Your Side that there are about 5,000 vacant structures in Buffalo they want to demolish.
