Dog Park/Dog Bar Coming to Western New York

Dog bars are very popular, especially down in the southern states where the weather is decent all-year long. They have the opportunity to use the dog bar and be outside for the majority of the year. There is good news, however. Buffalo, NY is getting its first Dog bar in Cheektowaga, NY. There are plenty of dog lovers in the area that have been waiting for this day to come, and it’s finally here!

Dog Bar Provides an Opportunity to Stay Out Longer

Many dog owners have trouble going out with friends for drinks and food because they don’t enjoy leaving their dog alone at home for a long period of time. If you work in an office, that’s already almost 8 hours every day that you have to leave your dog alone. With a dog bar, you can bring your dog out with you and not have to worry about that situation.

Buffalo Needs More Places Like This

In the past few years, Buffalo has slowly been opening up businesses that people are wishing for. There is a complete revitalization of the Western New York area. So many small and successful businesses are opening the doors for everyone to come in and enjoy. It was a little nerve-racking when the pandemic hit because Buffalo was on the rise and doing well beforehand. We didn’t know how the economy would do when the pandemic hit. Luckily, the area has stayed strong, and now we’re seeing more businesses open.

The Importance of Dog Bars/Dog Parks

There are so many dog owners who are looking for more activities to do with their dog. Dog bars and dog parks give them an opportunity. Dog parks are especially important because they provide a place of exercise for your dog. At Town Hall Terrace, we have a dog park on our property. If you’re looking for a new place to live in the Western New York area, we want you to come live with us. We can provide apartments, townhomes, or patio homes for you to rent in Grand Island, NY. We’re a short drive from Niagara Falls and the city of Buffalo.

Future Plans for the Buffalo Skyway

For so many years, state and local officials have been trying to come up with a solution to the skyway. Too many, it’s an eyesore in the city, and there are some hazards that go along with it. Windy and stormy days it is closed for safety precaution. The biggest question state officials have is what will we replace it with if they decide to tear it down? The governor already has plans moving forward to try and take the skyway down, but there is no further action plan on what will replace it.

Skyways Ideas Coming to Light

There were some plans of leaving the structure up but making it a raised park for people to walk through, but that hasn’t been a popular idea amongst many. The most popular thought would be to tear it down and develop all of the land underneath with larger parks and clean up some of the industrial sites around the area. This could be a wonderful thing for the canal side area because it could bring new businesses and help the city’s economy flourish.

Alternative Driving Routes

The Buffalo Skyway provides a driving route in and out of the city running north and south. Tearing the skyway down will eliminate this route, which will leave city and state officials with a problem. Obviously, this problem has to be solved before the structure comes down. There will have to be some route that replaces the skyway for those who take it in and out of the city. The 190 will not be enough for the future of growing populations in Western New York.

The Skyway Projects & Plans are Exciting for WNY-ers

This discussion and plan among the state officials should excite the people of Western New York. The Buffalo Skyway can be convenient at times, but in the long run, it will be better for the government to provide a tear-down solution sometime soon.

Save Money by Cooking at Your Apartment

When moving into a new apartment, it can be difficult to be consistent with cooking meals for yourself. 2020 brought us a devastating virus that crippled businesses and forced them to re-evaluate how the conduct their business. With that being said, we’ve seen food delivery skyrocket. It can be very tempting to just order takeout or delivery all the time, especially if you’re working out in an office again. It’s important to know that cooking meals for yourself is much cheaper.

Cooking for Yourself Can be Healthier and Cheaper

If you have a busy schedule, it can be stressful to make time to go grocery shopping. Living with us at Town Hall Terrace, you’ll enjoy grocery stores that are rather close to your townhome or apartment. You don’t have to worry about a long trip to get your ingredients for meals.

Here are some tips to make grocery shopping and cooking cheaper:

  •  Shopping Lists Help – When you have a shopping list written out, it will help you cut down on time spent in the store. Purchasing what you need, rather than what you want will also help to cut down on costs. You don’t have to be strict about your list. Get everything that you need to feed yourself, and then look at some treats or snacks.
  • Buy Non-Perishables – It’s encouraged to buy canned goods and foods that won’t go bad quickly. Rice is a good food that you can use for a long time without it going bad. Frozen vegetables and other healthy foods you can freeze is a smart thing to do if you’re looking to keep your grocery expenses low.
  • Cooking Can Reduce Stress – Any activity that involves focus and attention can help relieve stress. If you’re working all day, cooking can help you wind down at the end of the day for a good home-cooked meal.

The Benefits of Cooking from Home

When you go grocery shopping and cook for yourself, you can start to eat healthier because you know what’s going into your meals.

We believe this is a major benefit. When you decide to order food for delivery, you will see your expenses increase, which is never what you want, so why not try cooking your own meals at your apartment. At Town Hall Terrace, our apartments, townhomes, and patio homes are equipped with high-quality stovetops and ovens. You’ll be able to enjoy cooking from home every night or week.

What is Going on with Fantasy Island in Grand Island, NY?

For many years, Fantasy Island, and amusement park located on Grand Island, provided families an adventurous place to go and spend the day at. Throughout recent years, it has been closed and opened back and forth. Now, as the pandemic devastated so many small businesses across the country, the question now is will Fantasy Island re-open? Nobody really knows.

Fantasy Island on Grand Island in NY

Living in Grand Island, NY

Living in Grand Island, NY is quite unique. It’s a quiet and quaint little town with local shops and restaurants. Many who live here enjoy the peace and quiet they get because of the distance from the city of Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Although only a short drive to each, you get to settle down in your home or rental with some laid-back vibes.

At Town Hall Terrace, this is exactly what we offer with our rentals. We have patio homes, apartments, and townhouses for rent that come with plenty of amenities and extras on the grounds.

We do hope that Fantasy Island opens up again because it gives locals something different to do during the warmer months.

We Hope Fantasy Island Opens Again

It’s been a crazy and tragic year for many people. The loss of jobs, taking classes from home, financial issues, and of course sickness has devastated our communities across the country. It seems many local and small businesses are struggling to keep their doors open anymore. It is sad to see because now everyone is focused on the internet for their entertainment and life questions.

If and when Fantasy Island re-opens, we encourage everyone who lives at Town Hall Terrace, as well as the locals and out-of-towners to go and support the local amusement park. There is an extensive history with this park, and it needs to be taken care of for years to come.

How to Make Moving Easier for Yourself

Moving into a new place is very exciting. It gives you a fresh start and a new place that you’ll live in for the next year at least. The moving process is always a stressful one, especially if you have a good amount of furniture. Most people do not look forward to the actual moving day because moving large furniture, bedroom sets, and all of your belongings can take hours or even days. It also can be strenuous on your body.

Moving into a new home

However, there are always ways to make the moving process easier on yourself. For one, consider hiring a moving company for the heavier belongings like furniture and bedroom sets. You may also look at getting rid of unnecessary belongings to lighten the load when moving.

Hiring a Local Moving Company

A moving company is worth it. Many companies also provide packing services if you’re unwilling to pack up your things. It’s a good idea to organize everything first if you’re going to take this route. We recommend at least packing and labeling boxes for your own sanity. A moving company will not only help you move all of your furniture, but they’ll make sure everything stays safe.

The Benefits:

  •  Eliminate stress of moving
  • No need for lifting heavy furniture/belongings
  • Quick and easy delivery to new home/apartment
  • Ensure safety of belongings

 Declutter Before Moving

Another way to make moving easier on yourself and your family is to declutter your belongings before you move. Cleaning your current home or apartment and getting rid of useless items can help lighten the load of the move. Also, when decluttering your belongings, moving into a new place will relieve stress and give you a fresh new look with your place. Cleaning and decluttering can immediately relieve stress and anxiety of moving.

The Benefits:

  •  Get rid of unnecessary belongings
  • Relieve stress of moving
  • Organize your necessary belongings
  • Have a cleaner and more organized new home

At Town Hall Terrace, we understand that the moving process can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be if you arrange for movers or try and declutter your belongings. If you’re looking for new apartments, patio homes, or townhouses to lease, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re located in Grand Island, NY.

It seems as though the team will break the divisional drought this year, which means there will be a home playoff game. As for the fans attending, we don’t know yet.
