Welcome to Western New York

Much activity in this region revolves around Buffalo, New York State's (very distant) second-largest city, with about 250,000 people. The area first developed thanks to the hydroelectric power of Niagara Falls and the Erie Canal, which linked the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. The falls are now better known as a tourist destination, with 12 million visitors annually
