I'll take a job over weather any day. Weather has never been a factor in where I've chosen to live.

Same here. That said, I would never move to Buffalo.

Weather is absolutely a factor for me, and was a huge consideration when we moved here.

But for those who don't care, I hear N Dakota has jobs just waiting.

I love the weather in Buffalo, and I love the town of Buffalo. A city with extremely interesting architecture, big old warehouses, a waterfront and alot of history. Pretty cool town. Great outdoor resources very nearby.

I'd have a hard time moving there from here, but I'd do it in a second from most of the midwest and northeast.

LOL @ Buffalo

That city is crime-ridden, and there really aren't that many jobs there.

They said in the intro that they chose cities that have shown "modest growth" so that there would never be a large bubble to pop. There is always a reason for modest growth...

This just proves that these articles are clueless

Similar words were spoken about Durham when I moved here in 1994 (and still are by many to our east).

If these articles were talking about the cities themselves, then there's no way Buffalo would be on the list; especially for schools and crime, it's probably talking about the metro areas. In fact it is, because the average home prices and incomes definitely don't reflect the city stats. They looked at COL and unemployment rate; metro Buffalo has low figures in both.

Whether is technically subjective.

They really just picked cities at random, there's no ranking. Rochester is an hour away from Buffalo and has an even lower unemployment rate, similar (though slightly higher) COL, higher avg income, same whether, and much more diversified economy, yet is left off the list. Similar things could be said for other Texas cities left off the list while Austin and "Forth-Worth/Arlington" (some reason Dallas isn't included in that?) are there.
