There’s much more to New York than its five boroughs, namely Buffalo, the second-largest city in the state, with a population of 278,349.
Located in western New York, Buffalo, known as the “Friendly City” and “Queen City,” is a big city with a small-town feel. It’s also rich in Black history dating back to the 1800s with the Underground Railroad, abolitionist movement, Jazz Age, civil rights movement and present-day social justice movement. Buffalo also is bursting with entrepreneurs, from restaurants to cultural tours and everything in between.
