About Downtown Buffalo
Buffalo has come a long way from its origins as a small trading community established in 1789. Some early Dutch settlers purchase much of the land the current city of Buffalo in the late 1700s. Some of the town’s population is descended from those early Dutch settlers and their impact lives on in many of the local names. However, Buffalo did not have a large population until the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825. In the mid-1800s, the northern city served as the end of the Underground Railroad, helping numerous slaves into Canada where they enjoy freedom. During the industrial revolution, Buffalo reaped the benefits of having a nearby hydroelectric plant at Niagara Falls. The nickname of “The City of Lights” was awarded to Buffalo as it was the first to American city to have widespread electric lighting. In addition, the early 1900s brought many immigrants from Ireland, Germany, Poland, and Italy. The immigrants help build American by producing materials in the steel and grain mills.
Buffalo enjoyed the prosperity which came with being a large railroad hub as well as the largest grain center in the United State in the early 1900s. Fortunes turned in the early half of the 20th century and the city saw a decline in population. However, several major educational institutions led to the revitalization of Downtown Buffalo as a center for health care and education. The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, University of Buffalo, and the State University of New York are located in the metropolitan area.
The city is unofficially divided into sub-cultures with the settlement of the Irish in the Old First Ward, German in Kaisertown, Polish in Polonia, African Americans in the East Side, and Hispanics in the West Side. Because of the many cultures immigrating to Buffalo, the city boasts a wide array of cuisines. Foodies consider Buffalo a mecca for authentic dishes. Downtown Buffalo is perhaps most famous for being the birth place of the buffalo wing. Visitors flock to the Anchor Bar on Main Street to sample the original recipe of the famous food.
