The outgoing Broadway Market board of directors have decided once and for all that they are going to show us just how they’ve had the Market’s best interests in mind all this time by… attempting to sell off the Market’s historic artifacts! In what can only be described as a hissy fit of epic proportions, Business First reports:
In what some are viewing as a controversial move, the soon-to-be displaced Broadway Market management team will be auctioning off assets including signs, decorations and some equipment from the historic East Side venue.
The auction has been set for 10 a.m., Oct. 30 at the market, 999 Broadway. The auction is being conducted one day before the Broadway Market Management Corp. is being removed from operating and maintaining the facility.
“This is your chance to own a piece of Buffalo’s history, everything from the historic Broadway Market signs to the Easter Bunny hut will be sold,” said Cash Cunningham, who runs the Buffalo-based auction and real estate development company.
Thomas Telesco is the person responsible for the large scale stripping of the Central Terminal‘s artifacts. Maybe the Market’s board members should consider a similar exeunt as Telesco – go hide down in Florida for the rest of your life.
