One village is in the north towns, the other in the south towns.  The village of Lewiston and the village of East Aurora have been recognized as two of the safest places to live in Western New York according to a recent story on Channel 7 News

East Aurora ranks 27th out of 142 large communities in New York state. Lewiston ranks 41st. Both are nice, somewhat quiet communities in my opinion.  Small town feel with every you need to be happy.  Drug stores, grocery stores etc.

I have a friend who resides in East Aurora it's a lovely place to settle down and Lewiston is one of the first places I was familiar with when I moved to Buffalo in the early 2000's because my sister lived there when she was first married in mid-80's.
