I've lived here a large portion of my life. The people here are the friendliest among buffalo. A very safe place to raise children. Only downfall is village taxes.

I wouldn't choose to live here again because there's not much to do and there's a fair share of redneck/conservative nutcases. There are good people which makes the community better.
