I heard that Buffalo is a good place to ride the "recession" out because of its close proximity to Canada, and with the second most traveled international bridge going through downtown, millions of Canadian shoppers head this way (mainly to the suburbs) to shop and thus, restoring and keeping strong out retail and business economy. The Canadian dollar currency is supposedly to our advantage as well.

Lol, I'm just sayin! I normally like to go through the US forum to see if Buffalo just matches up with anything in there, so I can get into a conversation about Buffalo because I love it so much! What else can I do ???

Eh, seems like these lists are normally useless.

How well you make it through this time will depend on if you can keep your job, how much you have saved, and if you're willing to work harder.

Might go into a recession? Experts have been saying for awhile now that we've been in one whether it's met the technical definitions or not. Some people act like if you can't stick your entire hand through your pocket there's not really a hole in it.

I will stay where I am. We have a lot of experience.

Well Scranton's been in a recession for what, like 60 years now? Shouldn't that have permitted us to develop a natural immunity to any new recessionary fears?! LOL!

It's perfectly natural for someone to speak up about their area. It's helpful when someone like yourself speaks up about the positive aspects of their locale. Keep it up!

Wow. DC gets disparaged a lot in the national political dialogue, but it is getting serious love on this list. No. 1 and No. 2 on the list are both DC metro and No. 7 (Baltimore) has almost turned into a DC commuter suburb. Go DC!!!
