Buffalo is the second most populous city of New York, after New York City, with the population of 261,310. Buffalo is a wonderful city with diversity, both financially and culturally. The people here are warm and welcoming.
The city and suburbs of Buffalo have so much to offer. As stated by Miriam, museums and entertainment galore. The four seasons allow for a variety of indoor and outdoor entertainment. No matter where you live, you can be within minutes of anything you could possibly want to do. The through way systems are the best anywhere and yet often times they seem invisible. We can get anywhere fast and yet have the throughways not even noticed in our communities and neighborhoods. We rarely sit in backed up traffic. The shopping is outstanding and the ability to enter into Canada adds the entertainment and shopping opportunities. We have beaches that are within minutes.
