BUFFALO
HOMETOWN OF THE BUFFALO WING
Welcome to Buffalo, New York.
Buffalo is situated in Western New York, on the eastern shores of Lake Erie, right by the Niagara River and the Canadian border. With around 261,310 residents, Buffalo is the largest city in Upstate New York and the second most populous city in the state after New York City. The city emerged around 1789 as a minor trading community by the Buffalo Creek, and grew rapidly with the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825. By the early 20th century, Buffalo was the 8th largest city in the country and expanded into a major railroad hub and the foremost grain-milling center in the country. Times changed however and so did Buffalo, and many of the city's former industries declined along with the population. Despite challenges, the City of Buffalo is today a thriving center of economy in the finance, technology, health care and education sectors. Buffalo is one of the outstanding municipalities that have managed to keep growing in spite of the nationwide recession, while still being one of the most affordable cities in the country. Residents of Buffalo are called Buffalonians, and the city itself has been nicknamed The Queen City and more commonly, The Nickel City. The latter comes from the appearance of a bison on the back of Indian Head nickel in the early part of the 20th century. Buffalo contains astounding pieces of architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries, a fact that has been acknowledged by the renowned New York Times. There are around 80 sites listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and most old structures still stand. Among the landmarks remaining is the country's largest, and first, intact park system, designed by the renowned city Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Buffalo is a true haven for foodies, as the city is widely known for its outstanding cuisine. You'll find a variety of cultural contributions to the dining scene here, including Italian, Irish, Jewish, German, Polish and much more. In fact, the National Geographic Society even ranked Buffalo No.3 on their list of The World's Top Ten Food Cities. If you should find yourself in town with an empty stomach, check out some of the local favorites in downtown, like the Lodge, Tappo, 716 Food and Sport and Buffalo Proper. Some of the more traditional Buffalonian restaurants include Louie's hot dogs, La Nova Pizzeria and Anderson's Frozen Custard. And don't forget the world famous Buffalo Wing, which was first prepared in 1964 at the Anchor Bar. As far as entertainment is concerned, Buffalo offers a burgeoning music scene, more than 50 art galleries, fantastic orchestras and a theatre district with over 20 professional companies. So rest assured, Buffalo will have you covered in every area imaginable!
