    Buffalo Reviews

    Buffalo is a quiet, sleepy sort of town. But it's nice because it isn't over-crowded and there are plenty of places to find good food. It's not my favorite area in the world, but it's still a comfortable place to live! And I'm glad that we have a coffee-shop and a few boutiques in town too. I was really excited when we finally got a Cinnabon and a Taco Bell built this year! This will be a nice place to come back to when I come home on breaks from college.
    Review Buffalo
    The police are quite visible the majority of the time. They are good about making sure the speed limit it followed, and they make sure cars are in good repair on the road. I haven't needed to call them for an emergency, so I can't judge how quickly they respond.
    The overall experience of this area is okay it is a small town with plenty of gas stations and a lot of fast food places. It has a public high school. The resident in the area are somehow related to one another or they have never left the area or even the state. Every time I go to the grocery store I always see somebody I went to school with or a family friend. One thing that i love about this town is that they show a lot of support for all the high students that play sports. If had to choose to live here again i could not do it I would live somewhere far but close enough to visit every now and then.
