Don't know why you think it is so funny. Other than the economy, Buffalo is great! Well represented in the arts and theatre, great nightlife, easy to navigate, beautiful lakefront, great people, alot of great neighborhoods. If it can fix the economy, Buffalo would have one of the best qualities of life of any city.

Well said! Agree 100%. I wish more people would open up their minds a little. My goodness, to have to excuse themself to laugh uncontrollably is totally absurd and ridiculous. The reason I live in Buffalo is because it is one of the greatest cities to live in, and i have GREAT faith in the city's future and economy!

You're absurd, do you know nothing about Buffalo except of the bad rep. it gets? Buffalo is the most hidden gem in the U.S.

I don't understand people like you, and I WILL NOT argue the point much.

Never cast your pearls before swine!

This may just give you the credibility to be taken off my ignore list. I am a huge fan of Upstate NY, with Buffalo and Rochester being some of my favorite cities in the country and definitely near the top of my list for places where I would like to settle down and start a real life after college. Elmwood Village is one of the nicest areas in the country, and extremely cheap compared to other neighborhoods it competes with/is compared to. They really don't get THAT much snow--people exaggerate. The downtown may have gone downhill, but with the amazing architecture Buffalo has and just all the opportunities to be one of the best cities in the country, it has a great chance to be returned to its former glory, especially with the turn towards urban living for young professionals and couples. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they also have a pretty good public transportation system that even includes a Light Rail line?

I am originally from Rochester and both Buffalo and Rochester have so much upside. My friends and I used to love hitting those Buffalo bars until 4 AM and then take some hot girls for a walk along the Niagra River afterward. I love it here in Houston, but the upstate NY cities are pretty special.

Yeah, throw my hometown of Syracuse in there too. We actually get the snow, but it is beautiful, our crime rate isn't that bad at all, you can find nice places to live just about anywhere in the area, we have Syracuse University among many others within an hour, I believe the second or third lowest unemployment rate in Upstate NY to Ithaca and possibly Albany. Our Elmwood Village would be the University/Westcott area on the city's East side. It's a city of about 140,000 with an opera, plenty of theater opportunities, a symphony, plenty of ethnic and cultural festivals, beautiful scenery and so on. It's worth a try......

Maybe instead of bashing places you could, I don't know, maybe contribute to the thread or something?

LOL. fruitlassie holds a grudge against the midwest because they kicked her out due to constant complaining. She now lives in Berlin with all those fun-loving Germans.

jessemh431, you are right about Buffalo having a light rail-subway line downtown on Main Street. It gets relatively good ridership, and is quite unique. Cars will soon be sharing the line to increase business!
