Did you just see the 190 or the 90?

The roads in Tonawanda? Got not issues with them, they do a fine job maintaining their roads. However, they are not in as close proximity to the major highways are other areas in WNY are.

So, yes. We are here to give information. Sometimes, opinions are valid information.
Ok, so what you are saying is your opinion iis you need to live near a ramp as a priority? Well, I guess my priorities are different. I live live over 12 miles out east from the airport and that is where the closest ramps to any expressway are. Personally, I prefer NOT to live by the expessways

I'm glad you are happy. I was pointing out something that could be considered irritating to some, as well as something to be mindful of.

IT Guy:

See what I was answering?
The "I hate driving in snow" mostly tells those of us here for long times that a person wants to live close to work.
The job is in Tonawanda.
They plow well.
You really do not need the expressways if you want to live in Tonawanda and work there, so the need to be on a ramp in 2 min. is not a necessity here
Did you miss that before?

So does Kenmore. And, Kenmore offers closer proximity to more than just Tonawanda.

You do need the expressways if you desire to go anywhere BUT Tonawanda. So, no matter what, expressways are important.

There's not really a muslim area per se. There are high concentrations of arabic / muslim populations in Lackawanna (Yemeni mostly I believe).

Did you pass thru the east side for 5 minutes or something? Sure, Buffalo has plenty of low income and run down neighborhoods, but it also has a very vibrant art and music and theater scene, lots of energetic and enthusiastic people actively engaged doing things they love, and many really excellent restaurants (I grew up in NYC, have travelled extensively, and live half the year in Italy, so I have a lot to compare the restaurants to). The parks are beautiful and there is always someplace new to explore. Buffalo is really a hidden gem.

The one thing in your statement I do agree with is the lack of good quality Mexican. Cantina Loco opened recently to fill the void, but it leaves a lot to be desired. When I need a good Mexican meal, I drive all the way to Medina to go to Mariachi Del Oro (they make their tortillas by hand daily, and you can really taste the difference).
