Bailey Fights Blight

Bailey Fights Blight is a community-based project working to improve public spaces and re-imagine vacant or underutilized properties on Bailey Avenue. Through community cleanups, guerilla gardening, and public art, Bailey Fights Blight is helping to redevelop one of Buffalo’s major East Side commercial corridors.

Bailey Fights Blight is committed to fostering an inclusive and participatory process. Have an idea or suggestion for improvement? Let us know!

Join us for a Mural Celebration on September 30, 2017!

A cleanup and tulip planting will take place on Bailey Avenue from 10AM-Noon, with the celebration to follow from Noon-4PM.

Join the Tool Library, artists Edreys Wajed, Nicholas Miller, and Christopher Kameck, residents, students, and business owners as we debut two new murals at the corners of Bailey Avenue at East Amherst Street.
