When was the last time you cruised through the Broadway Fillmore area? This part of Buffalo really needs a lot of help. Many of the vacant homes that litter the neighborhood are owned by the city of Buffalo. Many residents feel that Mayor Brown should be doing more to remove these eyesore from the city. The reality is that the city probably does not have the funds to do so, but if it did, maybe they could give some of the residents jobs by putting them to work on demolition crews.

Take a look at this video which shows an area in need of some major help. It's too bad there wasn't some type of program to get the young people of these neighborhoods involved in its clean-up. It certainly would not be the cure, but it would make things a lot better.
