Buffalo Reviews

1 review
I love living in Buffalo and most of the people there are very friendly and polite. However, I do wish that some people would at least act a little nicer, such as waving or even just smiling. Also, there are some people in Buffalo who talk about others behind their backs or spread rumors that just are not true. I feel that they should worry less about others and more about themselves.
