Used to be a major train hub and have actual industries. Hard to believe but not so long ago, before the car took over, it was the 4th largest city.
Not only that it defeated Minneapolis to be the nation''s flour milling center!\
Whom do they think they are kidding in that photo with the drawn in future buildings? Nobody is going to build those. The day of downtown office space is over.\
I like Buffalo, for the size of its population the most cultural and artsy city in the nation, but its glory are its older buildings. The modern stuff is crap, just crap.
Keep the buildings, nuke the people.
It smells like ranch sauce and armpits.
Buffalo''s a pretentious twat.
R3, why would you say something so heartless? I was born in Buffalo and they are some of the nicest people in America...much nicer than people in New York, DC, Philly or Boston.\
You''ve probably never even been to Buffalo. They''d welcome you with open arms, even after saying such a horrible thing.\
Really r3, grow up and start doing something good with your life instead of tearing others down.
Unnaceptable-you ought to be ashamed of yourself.
I regret starting this thread. If people on Datalounge want to just kick down a city that''s already suffered, then go ahead. I really hope you sleep soundly knowing how much better you are than the rest of the world.
Trolldar reveals that r2 & 3 are the same people.
OP just ignore the flame bait. I love Buffalo, went to school nearby and we would drive there because our bars closed at 1AM. Buffalo''s were open until 4! I have always like people from Buffalo and Upstate NY in general. Nice people, and surprisingly good looking.
Oh, dear, Missy Op.\
You''re going to need to develop a thicker skin if you''re going to hang around here.
I think its great if you are married with a strong network of friends. If you are single and looking to date or find a husband, it''s a nightmare. Anyone with an ounce of brains, talent or good looks has already fled the city.
Isn''t it winter there like 10 months out of the year?
In a way, It''s like Detroit. The houses are super cheap. The values are super depressed and they sunk many, many years ago. Houses run form $15,000 and up
Now I want a Wegmans chocolate chip cookie. Dammit!
Wasn''t Tim Russert from Buffalo?\
I''m sorry, but that dude just looked like he did big stinkies in the bathroom.\
Reason enough not to go -- big stinkie haze lingering over the city.
[quote] The values are super depressed and they sunk many, many years ago. Houses run form $15,000 and up\
Yes the houses are cheap, but are they in decent neighborhoods? I can buy a cheap house in Detroit, but it''s like buying in a war zone.\
What are the decent areas in Buffalo, that have cheap homes, but are also liveable?
The people I''ve met from Buffalo have been very gullible. They believe anything they are told and trust absolutely everyone.
The two guys I know from Buffalo are very Midwestern-like.
Went to grad school in Buffalo. From Chicago. When I drove in from the airport, I was stunned in that it reminded me of old Chicago, before everything was built up. Nice people (city of good neighbors) still friends with someone I met there. Wouldn''t live there.
Looks like a nice enough place but it doesn''t have any real economic energy. The weather for non-natives is brutal. The life in the Sun Belt is cheaper, easier, and booming with choices. I''ve long known that geography is a subjective thing, so you can''t persuade people who don''t want to be somewhere that they should love it.\
Buffalo''s century was the 19th. We''ve collectively moved on, but it is a pretty town now and not likely to grow.
Any gay scene in Buffalo?
Still unsolved gay murder in Buffalo from 2010. There's a killer out there, Buffalonians.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
