The second biggest city in New York State was a major industrial centre in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. But after the inevitable post-industrial decline, Buffalo has embraced the challenge of renewal and is now an artistic mecca. Architects have made Buffalo their playground, creating some extraordinary buildings. The city is on the eastern side of Lake Erie, across the border from Canada, and its revitalised waterside area is a major draw for residents and visitors who have come to see the amazing power of Niagara.
Downtown-Canalside — The former industrial waterfront area has been radically transformed into a modern, urban idyll. The old warehouses have been converted into restaurants, distilleries and breweries, while the waterside of the Canals is packed with shops, cafes and some excellent bars.
Elmwood Village — The village in the centre of Buffalo is full of boutique shops, independent retailers and artisanal supplies. The farmers’ market is always packed and you can see art installations on every corner. And the well-stocked Albright-Knox Gallery is close at hand, making Elmwood a great place to get a feel for Buffalo.
Allentown — For a good dose of arts and crafts, Allentown is the place to come in Buffalo. Buskers don’t do solo here – you’re more likely to see a small band perform an impromptu concert to a small crowd on street corners. With walls filled with murals, lip-smacking restaurants and great live music, Allentown is vibrant Buffalo at its best.
Any fans of architecture will have a visual feast in Buffalo. From the perfect lines of the Prairie-style Darwin Martin House, to the 32-storey Art Deco City Hall building, the city is an eclectic mix of styles and forms. After seeing the Niagara and Lake Erie, make sure you visit Canalside, the Prudential building and the place where President William McKinley was assassinated in 1901. In the open air, the Buffalo and Erie Botanical Gardens, and the network of six parks including Delaware Park and South Park.
The town is famous for its chicken wings but with more than 400 independent restaurants to choose from, there’s no lack of variety in Buffalo. You can munch your way through town and still have plenty more to taste. Shopping opportunities abound – the outlet malls and Elmwood boutiques are all packed with interesting things. Get active by kayaking on Lake Erie, glimpse history with visits to American heritage sites and catch a baseball game at the Coca-Cola Field. With bike tours and a chance to visit the place where Pierce-Arrow cars were made, there’s plenty to do in Buffalo.
