Thanks to everyone who sent us the link to treeHugger.com this morning regarding its post on why moving to Buffalo is a green move. From the days of being known as The City of Light to being cast into the Rust Belt category to having the ability to reinvent the city, Buffalo’s proximity to fresh water, and the electricity drawn from it are once again looking appealing. With freight costs skyrocketing due to oil prices and heat waves becoming commonplace in parts of the country, Buffalo’s proximity as a central hub, along with its four-seasons, is looking up for many people.
“In fact, so many of those things that caused the trouble for cities
like Buffalo, like suburban sprawl, the private automobile and air
conditioning, are looking less and less tenable every day. What our
Great Lakes cities have to prepare for is a reverse migration, to
attract people back to cities like Detroit and Buffalo.”
