I love how the residents of Kenmore are not judgmental and are very friendly to each other. Kenmore is a close-knit community where everyone is supportive and welcoming of one another. For the most part, the residents are fairly open-minded. I loved growing up in Kenmore!

I love this village. It is a great and safe place to live. There are a lot of places nearby as far as things to do and a wonderful park for the children. We are also close to many other little suburbs of Buffalo so nothing is too far away!
I have lived in Kenmore now for 4 years. I have always wanted to live in the downtown area of Buffalo. After months of research, I found myself falling in live with the outskirts of the city and decided to move to Kenmore. I am close to booming neighborhoods and lots of local businesses.
