South Buffalo, NY residents remain bitter after city settled claims

December 1, 2009 - Residents in Hickory Woods have their checks from City Hall now, and some are packing up and leaving the South Buffalo neighborhood built on contaminated land. Most of them, even the ones who are staying, will tell you that what remains is not just a neighborhood, but a legacy of illness, death and deep personal loss.

For those who are staying at Hickory Woods, money is just one piece of a larger plan for returning the neighborhood to normalcy. They also want the city to complete environmental cleanup so that the neighborhood won't continue to suffer from image problems and subpar real estate values.
