I think it will go on for as long as Buffalo remains what is it: A place of mostly indigenous growth.
We don't get hit with bubbles, on the way up or down. It's the main reason why you'll never be able to "make it big" here. Wealth grows in a "normal" fashion. You won't show up in Buffalo one day with $10 to your name, and turn into a millionaire. But, you can get a job, settle down, and live comfortably here.
