Two Western New York towns have the distinction of being among the best places to live in the state, in 2021.

Eggertsville and Williamsville ranked in the top 15 "Best Places to Live in New York" list from Niche.

The website, which focuses on schools and data, ranked towns based on "factors including public schools, crime and safety, housing, nightlife, diversity and how good the area is for families," according to Buffalo Business First.
