A quaint, big small-town in Western New York, close to Niagara Falls, and with weather that's not really as bad as it's made out to be, it used to be a 'New York City' in its day, when the Erie Canal opened, but when everyone discovered New York City had a harbor, most people moved there.

It is best known for inventing a classic; The Buffalo Wings. You can travel the world, but you will never find Buffalo Wings like the ones in Buffalo.

The people themselves (Buffalonians) are generous, kind, good-humored, and the all-around good kind. The sports fans are extremely faithful, as, even though they too joke about how horrible the sports teams do, they seem convinced that the next season is the one where the will win.

With great food, fantastic shopping, a picturesque Marina, good people, appealing history, and a quaint and fullfilling big small-town feel, once you leave Buffalo, you can never find anything like it.

A city on the western tip of New York State, which once upon a time boasted a population and commerce only second to New York but now is only known for failing sports' franchises and a law enforcement system where no one, from minorities to 75-year-old men, is safe from brutality.
You're going to Buffalo? You better be careful, there's nothing but chicken wings and cops ready to bust the heads of grandpas in!

Buffalo, known as the "city of good neighbors" by its inhabitants, is now known by the rest of the country for its police department's missteps when it comes to allowing citizens to assemble and practice their first amendment rights.

A city everyone likes to hate on yet once you leave you miss it. Once you leave you don't eat for atleast a month because there is no good food except in Buffalo. See Mighty Taco Tim Hortons

Is a cesspool of a city located in Western New York that has long been a constant drain on New York State for decades. Forbes Magazine summed it best when they said “Buffalo has long been synonymous with city-in-decline” when they named Buffalo, which easily could be called Americas Calcutta, as one of “America’s Fastest-Dying City.” This city has little to offer unless you’re into vacant homes or you’re a fan of a losing NFL team. Then you have hit the jackpot as Buffalo’s vacant housing rate is the highest in New York and trails only Detroit and New Orleans.

The only thing that temporarily seems to stop Buffalo’s exploding population decline is that every September thousands of average students across New York come to Buffalo’s mediocre and irrelevant private and SUNY colleges and universities where most experience being a victim of crime for the first time.

Buffalo’s greatest claim to fame is the mixing some rancid disgusting sauce with fried fatty chicken wings. The popularity of this food is evident by the gigantic size of the population. Visiting any mall is like the running of the bulls in Pamplona as Buffalonians waddle and wheeze to the food court or Lane Bryant.

You will find one good thing about Buffalo. You will really appreciate what you have back at home once leave.

Not just a city for drinkers and sports fans (although it is an upside for some).
Home of: One of the most amazing modern art galleries, the Albright Knox (as well as the newly built Burchfield which features local artists) the Elmwood village which was voted one of the top ten greatest american neighborhoods in 2007; the beautiful Darwin Martin House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (as well as a few other of his less familiar designs); untouched architecture all over the city; amazing food--not just chicken wings either, vegans, vegetarians and bloody meat eaters alike can join together at many of the friendly restaurants here (ie amys place, merge buffalo, the lexington coop, left bank, hutches, globe market etc etc); A bike friendly community where weekly summer bike outings occur; outdoor Shakespeare in delaware park (along with row boats and books from talking leaves); insanely cheap rent in beautiful HUGE apartments/homes; one of the biggest outdoor art festivals, the allen town art festival; a next to nothing cost of living (and living well); people who can mock themselves, but have pride in where they're from.

Honestly everyone has their own qualms about where they live and buffalo isn't shy of it, but its a beautiful place.
Plus bars close at 4 and even the ugliest of people can get laid (ie: the pink)

Buffalo summers are unbeatable.

a once prosperous city filled with good jobs for everyone. in fact, college wasn't even necessary, cause there were jobs for everyone that paid pretty well. however, those jobs have all been shipped to mexico, china, thailand, taiwan and india among other places where workers are slaved for pennies a day that can never buy them any of the products they make. and, of course, the prices aren't really going down. But the city is, thanks to the apathy of a neo-con federal government, which could care less about the cities that built america, a state government that worries only about the so-called troubles of new york city, a city government that takes the little bit of federal and state money and pockets it into their own payraises and doesnt even attempt to solve problem, and a county government bureaucracy that only works part-time, gets paid more than double the salary of the avergae full-time worker in america, has no sense of creative thought, overstaffs itself and expects others to get rid of their so called patronage when they wont get rid of theirs. basically the great city has been fucked over.
outsourcing + federal neo-cons such as tom delay who cut off any aid + state interests + corrupt city gov't + county gov't shithole = the destruction of buffalo
