One of the things I always try and explain to people who are brand new to Buffalo is that the entire region has so many different areas. Western New York is a tight-knit community, but it's also a region with many different areas of both city and suburbs.

I grew up in the northtowns (North Amherst) and lived around the Niagara Falls Blvd/East Robinson/Maple Rd. area until I was an adult. I then spent roughly four and a half years living in the southtowns (Hamburg). I now reside in South Buffalo, near Lackawanna and West Seneca.

I'm happy I was able to experience a way of life in three different sections of Western New York. Personally, the northtowns hold my heart since my youth was spent there, but the food scene in the southtowns I love as well.
