History

Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • Stephen Paskey on Facebook: "A bit more digging online. As best I can tell, here's the story: the house was built in 1912, and Charles [Siraguse] bought it in 1938. In 1965, he built a house in Cheektowaga and moved there. He's still alive, as that house is still in his name and he sued Cheektowaga over something in 2011. The current owner of this house, Marie A., is probably his daughter. (His wife is Ann Marie). Property records list it as a three-family building. Perhaps I'm wrong, but what we seem to have is this: white flight to the suburbs, followed by decades as a rental under a suburban landlord, serious neglect while it sat vacant for at least a decade, and now this."
