A suburb north of Buffalo, NY.

The name was passed down from local indians and means "swift waters" referencing the mighty Niagara river which provides the border between the US and Canada. Tonawanda is home to the historic Erie Canal and just south of a natural wonder of the world, Niagara Falls. These early advantages made Tonawanda quite the boom town until steam and railroads made the Erie Canal obsolete.

People there are a mix of yuppie and white trash. They are hardcore Americans despite being from New York and has a high military presence. Tonawanda prides itself in being the least ethnically diverse city in Western New York, making it an ideal destination for the regions conservatives.

not to be confused with Kenmore, Tonawanda has three distinct regions: North Tonawanda(NT, the most racist little town in Western New York) the City of Tonawanda which does nothing but guard the canal and stalk drunk drivers leaving Crazy Jakes, and just regular Tonawanda.
My apartment just got robbed! I'm moving to Tonawanda.

Kenmore, NY is a village inside the town of Tonawanda. It is extremely small and is known to have at least one racist cop for every two streets. Paranoid white people have been moving there since the 50s and voting for higher taxes and strict rulz. Kenmore's roads are always plowed right away and a party of more than 25 underaged drinkers is doomed, this has earned Kenmore a top ten ranking from the American Planning Association in 2009.

Kenmore wishes it was Williamsville but it's not because it shares a border with Buffalo, resulting in many robbings and mischief. Because of this the police are always cracking down hard on drivers and youth. The old people are the most yuppiest kind you can find but the kids are all either emo, hipster or wigbag; they try to act ghetto but everyone knows they're from the whitest suburb around.

The two main highschools: Kenmore West and East both suck at sports but still keep up a pretty good rivalry. Kenmore West had a good team once with running back James Malory

*Kenmore is the jackpot of sexy milfs and highschool sluts. When people turn 18 they more to North Buffalo*

The biggest dream of most Kenmore residents is to possibly move to Amherst or Clarence.
Oh shit we just entered Kenmore, slow down to five miles below the speed limit, lower the radio, and buckle up.

Generic Black Dude: "yea I was driving in Kenmore and the cops pulled me over and arrested me in front of my daughters for no reason."
