Buffalo- The City of Light
Buffalo is attractively located at the eastern shore of Lake Erie and 16 miles south of the great Niagara Falls. It was one of the earliest cities to adopt electric power, giving it the name of ‘City of Light’.
With a population of 255, 284, Buffalo is the second-largest city in the state of New York. The city has always been an immigration hub straight from its earliest days of inhabitation by the Native American Iroquois tribe in the 17th century.
Later it was colonized by the French and witnessed the construction of rail transportation and Erie Canal in the 19th and 20th century. The confluence of midwestern and northeastern traditions along with urban planning by Joseph Eliot makes Buffalo a perfect place to reside.
The city boasts a humid continental climate, with snowy winters, and sunny summers. In 2019, Mayor Byron Brown called Buffalo a ‘Climate Refuge City’ because it well-insulated against the possibilities of climate change.
