Despite the looming weather, there is a plan in place to clean up a historic East Side neighborhood this Saturday (May, 14, 2016). The clean up is being initiated by a new East Side preservation group called Historic East Side Neighborhood Initiative (HESNI). One of the goals of the group is to clean up blighted areas, in hopes to attract interest in properties and buildings – to fuel the imaginations of investors, home owners, historians, artists, and anyone else who would like to live and work in the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood.
From 10am to 2pm, volunteers will be helping to beautify the neighborhoods surrounding the Broadway Market and The Central Terminal. Come join HESNI, Buffalo’s Young Preservationists, and a bevy of community activist “clean teams” as they do their part to activate a part of the city that is prime for reinvestment.
The Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood has some solid bones, and there have been a series of bright spots that could (and should) be capitalized upon. These clean up efforts are imperative in order to showcase the potential of the historic neighborhoods.

Meet up at 10 AM, rain or shine (or cold), at the corner of Market and Gibson Streets.
