CNBC has ranked Buffalo/Niagara-Falls as one of the ‘best cities to relocate to in America’ (see here). The buzz throughout the city’s social media community is skyrocketing, as the news begins to spread. The news site links to Sperling’s Best Places, as reference for the designation. It’s another great boost for Buffalo, especially when you see the short blurb next to the image – a blurb that mentions all of the positives in a number of topics ranging from arts to cost of living. Check it out:
Buffalo is an older, industrial city that has “gone through a sort of
gut-wrenching transition into the 21st Century,” Sperling says. And now
that it’s gotten over the bumps, it’s a great place to live.
Buffalo-Niagara Falls area
has a growing arts scene and it’s affordable: The cost of living is
14.4 percent below the national average, and the average home price is
$119,700, well below the national average of $171,700.
There are more than 20 parks in Buffalo, earning it
the nickname, “City of Trees,” and for all you sports fans, it’s home

The unemployment rate in the region is 8.3 percent,
below the national average. Health care and education are the fastest
