I came across this article on Fox News, http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2012/07/30/post-industrial-cities/#ixzz228HfkzJD, about the top US revival cities worth visiting and Buffalo, NY made the list. The article mentions the art galleries in Allentown, the 400 independently owned restaurants, and the ongoing canal side development project. The article reminded me of all that has changed since I started working downtown just four years ago.
Since I began working at Freed Maxick in the Liberty Building, the Statler Hotel has been renovated with a new night club and event spaces, the Lafayette Hotel has been renovated with new restaurants, bars and event spaces, and the canal side project has received some much needed attention. Four years ago when I stepped outside of the office I would say “where to go” because it just didn’t seem like there was that much to do, and now I say “where to go” because there are so many great places and not enough time to see them all!
Buffalo is a great place to live and work, so consider coming to check it out!
