Allegany is a quaint little town. There isn't much here. There are some schools, fire station, ice cream shop,and gas station. In the middle of the town, on Main Street there are a couple of cute stores, organic grocery, music store and an art studio. Very safe community to raise a family. Lots of Mom and Pop stores.
Review Allegany
Allegany, NY is a small town with a lot of character. Because there is a university (St Bonaventure University) located on the outskirts of the town, the traffic is a lot thicker than a normal small town would have. There are many eclectic shops on the main street. Very quite, nice town to live in.
If someone is interested in going shopping, as in retail, there is not much in the way of a mall. We do have a lot of chain fast food places and department stores, but nothing too up scale. There are few mom and pop shops left but the ones still standing are quite nice.
