I would rather live in Pittsburgh. It just seems to have more street life than Buffalo does making it feel like a bigger city. I've never visited both though, but by the pictures Pittsburghs streets have people all over them. While Buffalo doesn't.

I'd pass on Cleveland though, to far for me.

Pittsburgh and Buffalo are very similar during the day. Pittsburgh is a bit busier but both have alot of vehicles and traffic. Pittsburgh has more runners. Buffalo has more bikers. Going to either city during the day (incl. Cleveland) you would never think these cities were falling.

I think Pittsburgh has the best skyline, architecture, and inner city neighborhoods. That being said I would prefer to live in Cleveland. I think Cleveland has the better suburbs/metro area and offers the most activities.

Hands down i'd pick Pittsburgh to live in. the sports fans suck there but maybe they're worse because their teams (pirates excluded) are good, and can justify it. I also think Pittsburgh is the most likely to turn itself around completely. it's downtown is so compact that a population of 15000 people would be quite noticeable (I think it's around 5k now)

I agree. Cleveland itself has a very northeastern feel... The whole Northeast Ohio area has more to offer than the other areas.. highly different ethnic communities, plethora of museums, the Metroparks, Lake Erie, different/unique bar scene (Lakewood, Coventry, etc), world renown Westside Market, Cedar Point,etc.

I'd have to rank:

Cleveland/Pittsburgh
Buffalo.

All very underrated cities!

I love the charm, grit, and down-to-earth feel of these Midwest/Rustbelt cities. There are some amazing gems within all three city limits.

i'm very biased, but I'd pick Cleveland hands down.
