There’s Nothing Quite Like Buffalo Bills Territory

There’s nothing quite like Western New York when the Buffalo Bills are doing well. The last time the team won the AFC East Division title was in 1995, and before then, they were in four straight “big games” and lost. 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.

Living in Western New York

Western New York has always been a gem of a place to live in. However, when sports teams are doing well, it seems as though the atmosphere is much more upbeat. Western New York has plenty of places to offer when it comes to small town living. One place in particular is Grand Island, NY. Grand Island is a quiet place just a short drive to downtown Buffalo, as well as a short drive to Niagara Falls.

When Buffalo is vibrant, so is the community around it. Living around the buzz can get somewhat old after a while, which is why Grand Island is the place to live. At Town Hall Terrace, we offer a variety of living options for people who want to be close to the buzz, but also don’t want to be in the center of it all.

The Benefits of Having More Living Space for Your Dog

Living with a pet can sometimes be difficult, especially if you don’t have a yard. Many different dogs need room to get exercise and explore. It isn’t healthy for you to have your dog cooped up in your apartment or home all hours of the day. Sure, you can take them for walks, but they need land to roam around for them to feel free.

At Town Hall Terrace, our townhomes, patio homes, and apartments are ideal for living with a dog because we offer a dog park right on our grounds.

Apartment Living Tips for New Renters

Moving into a new apartment can be stressful, especially if you’re a first-time renter. There are some guidelines you should consider when renting an apartment for the first time. To be a good neighbor and someone who takes care of their apartment, follow a few of these tips:

Regular Cleaning

Once you move into your own place, you’ll realize that you have to do a good amount of cleaning and organizing each week to keep your apartment in good shape. The benefits of cleaning include a clear mind, stress-free environment, and a healthy place to live. Also, you don’t want to live in a pig pen, and if you do have roommates, they won’t appreciate that either.

Be a Respectful Neighbor

If you’re moving into an apartment complex, you will most likely have neighbors. Renting an apartment is much different than owning a home. You have a little more space to work with, but with an apartment, you must be on your best behavior. Always be respectful of their space, and don’t make too much noise in your own apartment. If you respect your neighbors, they’ll respect you, and there won’t be any future problems.

Stay on top of Maintenance Issues

If something goes wrong in your apartment where you have to contact the maintenance department, don’t hesitate to reach out. If you put off any issues in the apartment, they could result in more serious problems down the road, which could result in headaches for yourself as well.

What Should I Bring to My First Apartment?

The time is finally here for you to move into your first apartment. You may be busy with packing your essentials for moving in, but you also may be wondering what you should bring to the apartment. Many people who are new to moving into a new place may not know exactly how much or how little to bring into the apartment. It’s encouraged to only bring the necessities because eventually, you’ll have to move again in the future. It’s not smart to bring unnecessary items that you won’t use.


Here’s something to think about when packing to move into your first apartment:

Packing for moving 

Think Like a Minimalist


If you sign a lease for a year, it’s probable that you’ll eventually accumulate more “stuff” over the year, which means you’ll have more things to pack up when you leave after the lease. This can cause more stress when you’re packing up. When you start to pack, pack the necessities. The essentials should be boiled down to your clothes, toiletries, and other electronics. These should be the basics when you pack. Of course, you’ll have other things you’ll need depending on what the apartment comes with.


Make it Your Own Place


The number one thing you’ll want to do once you get into the apartment is to make the place your own. Put a stamp on the apartment with your style. By this, we mean it’s important to add your taste to the apartment as much as you can with the restrictions of changes to the apartment. Posters, picture frames, flags, houseplants, and other decorations that you like are encouraged to out in your apartment. These things are rather easy to transport in and out of the apartment. The important thing to remember is that you don’t want to bring too much. Bring the most important things that you’ll want to hang up or throw in the apartment.


If you’re moving into your first apartment, remember these things. You never want to have to pack more when leaving than when you first moved in. It makes the moving out situation much more stressful.

Why Moving Out of the City Can Be Fulfilling

Many residents in cities are starting a trend to move out of confined spaces, especially in larger cities. During this time of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it’s starting to become the popular thing to do for several different reasons. Maybe you don’t want to be packed in like sardines anymore. Maybe you need your space from others. Whatever the reason, there are benefits to living outside of a city large or small.

How to Improve Your Apartment’s Air Quality

Whether it’s due to the colder seasons or the pandemic, we understand that staying inside for months can make your apartment a little stuffy. Every home or apartment is capable of getting a little dusty and stuffed up. Well, here are some tips to freshen up your place to improve your air quality inside your home.

House plants for your apartment

Go Green in Your Apartment

 Cleaning your apartment with organic and natural cleaners is very important. You may have been cleaning more frequently during the pandemic with toxic cleaners. Those chemicals can be more dangerous than diseases outside, so it’s beneficial for you to get rid of those and get cleaning solutions that are healthier for the environment and yourself.

Another way to improve air quality in your home is to purchase some house plants that are known to improve the air. Here are some of the house plants that are beneficial:

  • Spider Plant
  • Aloe Vera
  • Lavender
  • English Ivy
  • Snake Plant
  • Rosemary

 All of these plants have different benefits of improving your air quality in your apartment. For example, the Spider Plant is very beneficial for removing formaldehyde in the air, which is brought in by paper bags, waxed papers, facial tissues, paper towels, napkins, and other materials you wouldn’t think twice about.

Cleaning Up Around the Apartment

 It’s important, especially when spring cleaning to keep a consistent schedule for doing chores. Make sure your kitchen is cleaned regularly after meals. Keep a separate bin for recyclables, and make sure you throw out your trash right away if there is food in it. Keeping your rugs and carpets clean is also a major factor when trying to improve your indoor air. Carpets can trap dust and dirt, so it’s crucial for you to clean those up before they build up.

At Town Hall Terrace, we provide beautiful apartments, townhouses, and patio homes in Grand Island, NY. We have a professional maintenance staff on duty for any repairs you need to get done to your place. Come live with us for a quieter place close to Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
