About Buffalo, NY
Buffalo’s historic charm and architecture brings in visits from all over the country but what keeps them here are the amazing people, convenient location and recreational opportunities. Nicknamed the “City of Good Neighbors,” Buffalo’s strong sense of community makes this 2nd largest city in NY feel quainter. Conveniently located, Buffalo allows you the opportunity to visit other regions just within the weekend. A visit to Niagara Falls, a ski get-a-way, or a weekend on the boat, are only a few broad options we have due to our weather and location. The area is well represented with churches, social organizations, shopping areas, restaurants, etc. The cost-of-living in this area means that earned income goes farther dollar-for-dollar than in many other areas of the state. In addition, the profession enjoys an active local veterinary association, including the Buffalo Academy of Veterinary Medicine. These are some of the reasons why we feel that Buffalo is one of the most attractive cities in New York in which to live and practice.
