PUSH Buffalo and other allies marched down Perry Street Wednesday, from the Commodore Perry low-income housing complex to the headquarters of the city’s economic development offices.

 

The half-mile route wasn’t random.

 

Marchers are demanding New York state provide more funding for public, affordable housing like the Perry Projects, and less funding for private, wealthy real estate developers who benefit from economic development boards housed at 95 Perry St.

What to do with Buffalo's Commodore Perry public housing project? Some some replace it with a new football stadium. Congressman Brian Higgins says renovate it into affordable housing. Neighbors say the apartments still may not be affordable for them. On Monday, Buffalo's Mayor teased the city is working on another plan.
