About the area: Buffalo and the greater Western NY area is in a full scale resurgence with a beautiful redevelopment of the waterfront, restoration of historic buildings, tons of new restaurants and libation shops, a vibrant arts scene, excellent schools, and an enthusiastic sports culture.  The four seasons are truly lovely and if you really hate snow, we really don’t get as much as the media leads everyone to believe.  You can work from home on those days.  If you like snow, there are some great skiing areas just south of Buffalo.
