This is sad.
Dave Torke has been beating the drum for this historic property for years, and now they’re gone.
The City of Buffalo is dis-functionally out of whack in favoritism for downtown pay to play buyers of government.
People living in neighborhoods with trouble are condemned by class and racial elitism and an unresponsive government.
The Mayor in the suit backed by pay to players tours after murders and destruction of property is playing an old haggard tune.
If a private property owner wants their building down all they have to do is leave it vacant and unrepaired until it falls down or has to be “emergency” demolished. Why should the City hold itself to a higher standard than the on it holds citizens to?
The row was demolished this morning. Here some pics/video.
