I admit I never would have read this thread if it weren't on the NYC board, and I also admit that the photos look very nice, so I'm glad this thread was started.

However, I don't understand why you are bumping the thread by posting the same exact photos you posted in the original post more than a few months ago. ???? What is your motivation for doing this? Are you feeling neglected out there in wild west? Haven't you taken any new fall photos?

Never been there but its always reminded me of Pittsburgh when I see it or see people from there on TV. But I haven't been to Pittsburgh either, lol. Guess I'm just going off conceptions and stereotypes.

I have been upstate several times though. Its just a whole other world upstate. So different.

When I think of Buffalo I think of:

High crime rate
Abandonement
Cold weather
Poverty

That city needs alot of help IMO.

I've heard good things about Buffalo, but people have said it is boring over there. Also, they all agree New York is better

I've been to Buffalo several times. LOVE the hot wings in those bars up there! The thing about those photos you posted, the same could've been done to just about EVERY major city (Buffalo still is considered a major metro area) in America.

Buffalo can be lumped in with Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Besides having similiar populations, ALL 3 are 'considered' "dying cities". I'm not knocking Buffalo, it does have some good points, but, you did leave out the fact that "Forbes" listed it as a "dying city".

Downtown Buffalo seemed dead to me. Even though Buffalo and Pittsburgh have similiar populations, Pittsburgh seemed more of a 'big city' to me than Buffalo did. I did see some 'cool neighborhoods' there though. But, some of the things you're saying about it, seems like a STRETCH to say the least.

I'm not saying it don't have it's fair share of 'pros' to living there. But it's a 'blue collar' city, and it ain't going to attract alot of professional types. "Wild West"? Some of these NYC people crack me up. They don't have a clue what 'West' really is (I guess Albany is the Mid-West LOL).

P.S. Don't worry about the "SuperMario's" post either. The same 4 things he listed about Buffalo, could be said about NYC too! (with the exception of abandonment)
