A long and contentious meeting of the Buffalo Board of Education Wednesday night turned loud in criticism of  school board President Jim Sampson.

D'Youville College is significantly expanding its campus holdings.

The school has added a 65,000 square foot structure with the purchase of the former Gateway-Longview headquarters building on Niagara Street. The building has a long history as its original foundations were laid in 1890. A spokesman for the school claims there are no immediate plans for the building, though it is likely to hold offices, classrooms and teaching laboratories.

The purchase price was more than $700,000.
