Coming from a stereotypical suburban neighborhood, I believe that North Buffalo is full of opportunity and diversity! Before moving to North Buffalo two years ago, I spent a lot of my time looking out the window at dull scenery, as it consisted of primarily trees, grass, and, more times than not, not a great amount of people. However, since I've moved to North Buffalo, I've seen an abundant amount of human interaction from people simply greeting each other while walking up and down the street to seeing crowds of people each night on Hertel Avenue. With that being said, Hertel Avenue is the jewel of North Buffalo filled with shops, restaurants, and more! I love walking up and down Hertel, and I love spending time there with my family and friends! Furthermore, there are all different kinds of people in North Buffalo and there is something to do for everyone! Overall, I love North Buffalo and living there has been an amazing experience!

I have always loved this area. There are many accessible shops, restaurants, bars, and so much more walking or biking distance from anywhere. People are generally friendly and the city is a flourish of color in the spring and summer. I wouldn't change a thing, except for bad drivers.
Great area! Lot's of things to do, ton's of stores and restaurants. My only complaint is the local schools could be better.
