About Buffalo

Buffalo, which is the second largest city in New York, behind the Big Apple, is a great place for tourists and residents. It has a rich cultural history, attractions are plentiful and dining is exquisite.

Buffalo dates back to the 1700's. The city has been marred by a famous war, established an important first, and experienced an economic decline that threatened to wipe it off the map. However, Buffalo has proven its strength over the centuries and has always bounced back stronger than ever.

During the 19th century Buffalo began establishing itself as a working class city. After a whirlwind capture by British troops and their Native American allies, during the war of 1812, most of Buffalo was destroyed. The city worked relentlessly to rebuild itself. By 1825 the Erie Canal was completed which opened a 524 mile waterway starting at New York City and ending at the western end of the state, to Buffalo.

By the turn of the 20th century Buffalo, New York, was popular in immigrant circles and received an influx of workers from Ireland, Germany, Poland, and Italy seeking jobs in the steel and grain mills. This worked to the city's economic advantage due to its proximity to the Great Lakes and the Erie Canal.

Buffalo played a major role in the modernization of the rest of the United States when it became the first city to get electricity, powered in part, by nearby Niagara Falls and received the nickname, "City of Light."

Buffalo enjoyed its popularity but by the mid 20th century, this section of Western New York, which had once been a major city of importance, experienced a major economic decline in 1957. It took nearly 50 years to regain substantial recognition. Economic development in 2006 brought the city back from the doldrums to the tune of $3.5 billion with a rank of 83rd of best cities for jobs by Forbes magazine.
