About Buffalo

As the city with the second largest population in the state of New York, Buffalo has an extremely different atmosphere than bustling Manhattan. There are several thoughts about how the city’s name came about. Some say the name Buffalo was not inspired by the animal because buffalo did not live in the area at the time the city was named. Others say that there is evidence that the animal was present when settlers arrived in the area.

Buffalo is a city with much to offer. It has a rich history, is the country’s biggest inland port, is a major railroad center, and is one of the nation's primary steel producers. Perhaps it is this combination of factors that has made the city a cultural melting pot.

Niagara Falls may be the most well-known community near Buffalo, but Lockport, Tonawanda and Williamsville are nearby residential areas where residents rely on Angie's List to find service providers recommended by members in their area. Join Angie’s List Buffalo.
