Honestly, it may depend on who you ask as to which and what they may like as well. I think Richmond's more older, historical and cleaner look in some neighborhoods would appeal to some/many. This isn't to say that Buffalo doesn't have this look, as it isn't really considered or it isn't as old, when thinking about the city. For instance, not too many people think or know about the West Village neighborhood near Downtown, Lake Erie and Hutch Tech, a very good and diverse magnet high school: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.8927...7i13312!8i6656

Can't remember, but if it helps she was paying a bit over 2k for the first apartment, and living in a building with a bunch of Sabres players. They were trying to recreate the Boston experience living wise, so it would have been whatever neighborhood would be generally considered the cutest and funkiest. Coming from Boston, price was no object, they found buffalo quite cheap.

It is probably Downtown, Allentown or Elmwood Village. There are some Bills players that live in parts of Buffalo as well.

I agree, Buffalo is more appealing to me. The city feels larger, more like a Milwaukee than a Youngstown. It has a more open laid back feel, too. I like the street network, wider streets, plazas, and the way the city has blended in green space in the downtown area. The nearby areas of Niagara and St. Catherines also boost the village feel and have stunning scenery.

You do have quite a few smaller villages/cities in the area as well. Lewiston, Youngstown, Kenmore, Williamsville, Lancaster, Lockport, Akron, Hamburg and Orchard Park are some that come to mind.

But you've never even been to Buffalo to say it "feels" like anything. For that matter, you've never been to Richmond...
