I always love the new businesses and how it brings the community together. Ice Cream shop? Tons of them to go to! A comic shop? There's pulp fiction and it feels just like home with a hint of fandom love going on. A little cafe? There's something for everyone here and cannot help, but love how we all look after each other and make it so much like home.

Cute farm town that meets the city. Could use more job opportunities. However, the commute to Buffalo and Amherst is not bad at all. We can get to the city within 45 minutes and to Amherst in 20.
The people are friendly and look out for each other. I went to high school there and it was an excellent experience. The teachers are very concerned with their students and the patents are very involved with the school and sports and music and plays. It's a very safe area and everyone watches out for everyone else
