ABOUT ERIE COUNTY
According to NY.gov “Erie County is a metropolitan center located on the western border of New York State covering 1,058 square miles and consisting of 3 cities and 25 town governments. Buffalo serves as the county seat and is the second largest city in the State.
The county is bounded by Lake Erie to the west and Niagara County and Canada to the north….It is home to countless museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, professional and college sports teams and more than a dozen colleges and universities.”
According to Invest Buffalo Niagara, “abundant green spaces are surrounded by sparkling waters, including two Great Lakes – Erie and Ontario –and the Niagara River, and one of the world’s most popular natural wonders, Niagara Falls. To the east and south are rolling farms, great ski areas, countless inland lakes and rivers, miles of hiking and biking trails, many New York State parks and forests, and much more to enjoy.
Buffalo and its sister city, Niagara Falls, are the business and entertainment hubs of our region. Both cities are undergoing phenomenal transformations spurred by billions in public and private investment. Redevelopment and new construction abound and businesses from restaurants to galleries to technology centers are opening at the fastest pace in more than 50 years.
And while the positive energy is tangible, the ability to enjoy living and working here remains eminently accessible: Buffalo Niagara still has one of the lowest costs of living and easiest commutes of any similarly sized metropolitan areas in the United States.”
