The economic center of Western New York. For many years downtown Buffalo was being run down by crime, and rust. But recently many new projects have been built/are being built/planned, such as the new waterfront, the statler towers being redeveloped, the Marriot Hotel downtown, the new federal courthouse, and the MANY abandoned buildings being turned into lofts/businesses. Buffalo is on the rise.
Rochesterian: Wow, our downtown is better because we have 2 waterfalls, and like 3 highrise buildings!
Buffalonian: Have fun with your panhandlers! We have over 50 high rises, a waterfront in development and many other projects being done! Downtown Buffalo rocks!
