Buffalo Essential Info


The second-largest city in New York State and situated in the Niagara Frontier, Buffalo is a city full of surprises. Though Buffalo is often the butt of jokes about chicken wings, its long-suffering sports teams, and the mountains of snow under which it is buried each winter, local residents and others who are in the know tell another story: one of great nightlife, good museums and cultural attractions, and tight-knit neighborhoods with community spirit and a real sense of place. A great part of Buffalo's appeal to many visitors is the still-palpable sense of its history as an important industrial center. Historic buildings and sites around town tell the story of a city that was great once and has all the tools in place to be great again.
