Local Matters: A look back at 2021

Buffalo’s perseverance in the midst of unprecedented challenges

We collectively stand on the brink of a new horizon: 2022.

How do you summarize a year like this one?

Our WNY community has experienced the highest highs and lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between.

If there is one thing the team at Buffalo Rising hopes to have inspired, it’s that local really does matter – You matter, Your stories matter.

As do the stories of your neighbors, small business owners, mailman, fitness instructor, favorite restaurant staff or bartender, and all the people that make our ordinary spaces feel like home.

We are incredibly grateful that we get to tell these stories, from theatre, music and arts to development and social issues — and we are just getting started! Big things are around the corner in the new year and we can’t wait to share them with you.

But before we look ahead, let’s take a moment to reflect on 2021!

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
