Home to buffalo chicken wings and the inaugural site of Theodore Roosevelt, this is where you can cross into Canada over the central Peace Bridge that was built in 1927 and you end up in Fort Erie in Ontario. Buffalo sits on the banks of Lake Erie in upstate New York. Because of the powerful Niagara Falls, it featured electric streetlights as early as 1886 and The Hotel Buffalo was the first hotel to have private bathrooms in the world. Grain elevators were invented here in 1842 and the Elliott Square Building built in 1896 was the biggest office building in the world at that time. The second most populous city after New York, most people rush past here in the hurry to get to Niagara Falls. Originally a major transport hub because of it being on the Erie Canal, in the early 1990s it was one of the wealthiest cities.
With over 900 restaurants in Buffalo, it is a food lover's heaven. From its cafes, bars, restaurants and mobile food trucks, the ethnic diversity of its population is reflected in its food on offer. If you are into architecture you will be on mental overload of excitement when wandering around the city, as every corner will bring some amazing architectural gem into sight. From the art deco city hall to the Renaissance facade of the Ellicot Square Building, there are 80 buildings registered on the National Register of Historic Places. There are 5 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings alone. Created by Frederick Law Olmsted who also designed Central Park in New York, the city's parks have interconnected pathways and green spaces that will have you running, jogging or pinching someone's bike to go for a ride. A booming art scene with over 50 art galleries, you should head to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery to find works of Matisse, Warhol, Dali and Picasso to name a few. There are 2 art festivals held each year, the Elmwood Festival of the Arts and Allentown Art Festival, for the true aficionado.
When its time to chill out, sit in a cafe with an espresso and simply watch the world go by.
