Every once in a while it is fun to do a post, which is simply pure Buffalo boosterism. Buffalo really is a beautiful city and it is surrounded by a beautiful geographically rich environment. The great lakes – Wow! Buffalo has two of them plus the finger lakes and wine country and Niagara Falls! Hills to the south with great hiking and skiing, vast vistas of water to the west and did I mention Niagara Falls as a suburb. Great fun things are easy to get to these things are accessible. Go to a museum in Chicago you find yourself constantly dodging people in over crowded galleries to see the art. The Albright gives you the space to really see what you are there to see. On top of that Buffalo remains extraordinarily affordable. The average person can live quite well in Buffalo. I was recently reading about a new super luxury apartment building going up in NYC. Apartments will start at $18M! Another story I read noted a new apartment building in Oakland California would have units starting at $8,000 per month! Its insane.
