I bought 1/4 acre lot there in a decent neighborhood. I decided to put a shed on my lot (since I needed a place to store my lawnmower and other yard work related tools). Day 3: A police officer shows up (with no probable cause, and no warrant), he interrogates me about my identity, asks what is in the shed, wants to run my ID, and the whole time keeps his hand on his pistol. He gives a lame excuse that there was a peeping tom reported up the street (not unusual since the amount of meth-heads and drunks are exceeding the norm). I calmly told him that I have been here all day doing yard work, he walks into my shed and sees a chair and asks "are you living in this shed?", I had to answer the same question 5 times. Worst police in any small town I have ever been to.
Buffalo is small with little to do and lots of problems. If you don't nail it down it will eventually get stolen ,drugs are a problem, and those are only the things I noticed at a glance. I tried very hard to mind my own business when I could.
Buffalo isn't a terrible place to live, but growing up in Rural Iowa and moving to Buffalo, its a big difference. My hometown was 300 people with my graduating class of 12. So moving to Buffalo there has been a difference in the crime rate, school system, government, and community involvement.
