The video that you are about to see is almost four years old. It's from a show called "Inside USA", and the episode is called "Buffalo Blues". It describes Buffalo as the second poorest city in the nation.

Recently, I have seen claims that Buffalo is actually the third poorest city in the United States. If you turn the clock back to 100 years ago, Buffalo had the highest number of millionaires per capita in the country. Our city was also the 8th largest city in America at the time. It's no secret that Buffalo's glory days of industry and manufacturing are well behind us. We are in the same situation as many other "rust-belt" cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Erie, Pittsburgh, Toledo and even Chicago.

So my question to you is: How bad is our economy in Buffalo? And do you think we will ever recover?
