City Summary - Buffalo, New York
Behind New York City, Buffalo is the second largest city in New York. 1,200,000 people live in the metropolitan area. While Buffalo has been hit by the economic recession and unemployment is higher than the national average in the city, Buffalo has held onto its vibrant metropolitan identity. There are a number of outlets for entertainment to residents, and is also home to a number of renowned universities.

Buffalo is consistently recognized as one of the best cities to live in, winning titles such as 3rd Cleanest City in America, the "All-America City Award", and USA Today's "City With a Heart". It is also becoming more well-known as a tourist destination, having been listed as one of the New York Times' 44 Places to Visit in 2009.

Winter in Buffalo is very cold, as vapor-filled winds from Lake Erie bring snowstorms. However, it is not as snowy as popular conception would make it out to be — in fact, it is not even the snowiest city in New York. While Buffalo is known for the blizzards of 1977 and 2006, these are not annual occurrences.

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority runs an extensive bus system, although most residents get around by car.

Buffalo is relatively safe, although the East Side is fairly unsafe. This is a blue-collar, poor part of Buffalo, and the crime rate — particularly on Fillmore Ave. and Bailey Ave. — is higher on the East Side of the city than in other sections of Buffalo.
