A Landlord in the North End of Springfield treated his tenants and their neighbors to a block party this afternoon.
An estimated 500 residents of all ages accepted the invitation from the management company of the Villa Nueva Vista apartments at Main and Harriet Streets.
State Senator James Welch donated a few thousand dollars to help feed and entertain the hundreds attending.
One guest told 22News how impressed he is with the landlord’s generosity.
“I want to rent, I want to be his tenant,” said Alberto Figueroa of Springfield. “Definitely really nice, I never seen nothing like this before. The kids are having as great time, that’s the most important thing the kids.”
The invitation to the Friday afternoon block party had been extended to family and friends from the entire North End neighborhood attracting hundreds of all ages.
