Hanging on...

The City of Buffalo has owned this house at 93 Riley Street for the last four years. Driving by would you know it's for sale? Didn't think so. I spoke with the neighbors the other day. They had no idea the City owned it either. It's right around the corner from the emerging Midtown and Artspace area of Main Street. Here's the Google Map showing the way.
93 Riley - Masiello Legacy!
Last time I checked most realtors have a sign and a website, but not the City of Buffalo. Call your Council person - 851-4200 - and ask them, " Why isn't the list of City owned property available on the City's website?" Or try this, "Hello, Byron? I think it would be a good idea if...."

The picture was taken last October, love the sign...

This is the link of the homes for sale at the city site. Some are good for HOMESTEADING. That means you get it for a dollar and get 18 months to fix the code violations if it's still the same as it was. Rules may have changed, but that's what it used to be. So those of you who don't like what's going on, put your money where your mouth is and save a piece of Buffalo!
