Buffalo Lands On Latest “Best Place To Live” List
It looks like wings, a winning football team, and lots of local arts have helped Buffalo become a great place to live.
US News and World Report recently released their list of the 150 best places to live in America in 2022. There were several factors that combined to get the final ranking and Buffalo made the Top 75 coming in at #70 on the list.
According to the report, Buffalo got high marks for value and quality of life. Buffalo got low scores in the Job market and net migration, which means there are more people leaving Western New York than moving in.
Buffalo was ranked the 3rd best place to live in New York State coming in behind Albany and Syracuse and ahead of Rochester and New York City.
Buffalo was also ranked the #126 best place to retire and #17 cheapest place to live.
Overall Buffalo got an overall score of 6.6 out of 10 which puts it way behind the Top 10 on the list.
If you ask me, this list is way off when it comes to living here in Western New York. We have seen an amazing transformation in Downtown as well as in the suburbs. Lots of local businesses have popped up, Canalside has become a must-visit destination and f course summers along the lake can't be matched.
Even during Winter, spending time on the slopes skiing or snowboarding is amazing. There is so much to do all four seasons and I think Buffalo should be much higher on the list, if not the #1 spot in New York State. Really...who even goes to Albany?
Here is a look at the Top 10 places to live in 2022 according to US News and World Report.
