Why Buffalo is Awesome: 26 Things Only Buffalo, New York Natives Get To Brag About
Welcome to the 716. The Queen City. The Nickel City. The City of Light. Welcome to Buffalo, New York. Everyone knows us for our astonishingly tough winters, but those of us who actually live here know there's so much more to us than simply being tough. If you're from here, you know what I'm talking about. There are some things only we Buffalonians get to brag about.
