West Side Reviews
In Buffalo's West side there alot of diversity of the people living here but there not much government interactions. I think the government should pot roads and talk to the peoople that live there about their concerns.
I haven't had many experiences with the bars in this area because of my age, but it seems like the nightlife is a lot of fun. I personally love the sunday night bike ride. In a night, the ride would accomplish anywhere between 10-20 miles. It's a great workout and what better way to spend a sunday night in the summer time with a bunch of very good friends, riding bikes all over the city?! As many as 300 people have shown up and ridden all over Buffalo. It's an incredible experience. Restaurants in Buffalo are great. Two blocks from my house is a delicious Vietnamese restaurant that I frequent weekly. Also, the locally owned cafes are amazing. I stop by almost every day for a coffee at my favourite one and also used to work at my other favourite.
Elmwood Avenue has improved immensely during my time living in this area. Local shops, restaurants , and cafes are beginning to occupy Elmwood Ave near Bryant, which has been an area in need of clean up. Canalside downtown is beautiful and has so much to offer in all months thoughout the year as well and is only minutes away.
