People who say that 'there is nothing to do in Buffalo', have a very narrow reference frame on what is 'good', or 'entertaining' in life.

All places are the same imo.  Theres things to do everywhere it's just whether you want to do them.  People get way to sensitive around here.  Who cares what people say about Buffalo.

Miami Beach nightclubs notwithstanding, what is it that doesn't exist in Buffalo that fuels people's perception that there is nothing to do?

 

We could use a Korean restaurant in the South towns, but other than that I've never had a problem with finding something to do in my 17 years here.

Riverworks is a pretty damn cool place to go if you have "nothing" to do.

All places are definitely not the same.

 

There are all kinds of opportunities presented in large cities that are completely lacking in WNY.

 

Having said that, there is certainly stuff to do in WNY, and suggesting that there is "nothing" to do there is wrong.

Don't forget Pegula trying to hire Mike Babcock to coach the Sabres.

 

There was much to do about his wife not wanting to leave Detroit...

 

Turns out she was OK moving to TO apparently.

I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. 

 

I lived in Boston for a while, and there’s 5 different events/activities/things going on for each of the 10 things you’re into every week. In Buffalo there are less options. Depth is a little lacking if you will. 

 

Ive lived a bunch of places. I love Buffalo, it’s always been home, and is now too. It definitely gets a bad rap, it’s not the worst place, it has a ton going for it, I dig it, but it’s also not the absolute best, like some homers like to say it is.

People say there's not much to do around here in VA, but you can find pretty much any scene you want in Richmond, VA. There's also a beach about an hour and a half away with VA Beach being a decent spot. It's not South Beach around here, it's not LA, it's not NO, or NYC, but nowhere is except those places. It just depends what you want in life with anywhere you are. If you want to rub elbows with the rich and famous then Buffalo isn't for you most likely, just like Richmond isn't for you. There are still people and plenty to get into though I'm sure.

Yeah but we also dont have to live an hour and a half outside the city and ride the commuter train in to go places because parking is $40 a pop.

 

I just was in Boston a few weeks ago for vacation and driving is utterly terrible there. Better leave your house an hour before you think you need to if you have to be anywhere at a certain time.

 

So yes there might be less to do here but there is also far less wasted time stuck in traffic or commuting as well.

I don't think anyone is saying Buffalo is the "best" or comparing it to a major metropolitan area like NYC or Boston.

 

I've lived in small towns, rural areas and large cities and know what "nothing to do" is really like. Buffalo, is not that.

I wasn't offended by Jordan Matthews' remark - in fact, I thought it was pretty funny. 

 

For the record, I don't care what people say about where I'm from or where I live now.

I wore something similar to my HS prom, I’m ashamed to say. Somehow he pulls it off a bit better.

I don't care. I'm not offended over someone's ignorance about the city.

Some folks are fine with Crocheting and Friday night bingo ! Hairdresser Friday mornings , Tea , scones and cribbage wednesday at the Ladies  Social down at the VFW
 Perhaps Mrs Hyde is one of those fine folks the world could use more of .

 

 there is always something to do no matter who you ,or where you are. just different somethings.

Did I say you specifically were?  You know as well as I that people get very sensitive when things are said about Buffalo.  And why are you then saying hes ignorant.  Maybe Buffalo just wasn't for him.  So what?  Everyone has a right to their opinion.

What I meant was there are things to do everywhere.  When a place is new its exciting there are things to do..but eventually eventually every place is pretty much the same in that regard.

I don’t know about her, but Micah Hyde has lived in Fostoria, Oh, Iowa City, and Green Bay, WI. I guarantee orchard park ny is the nicest place he’s ever lived and Buffalo has more to do than any of his previous addresses.

As someone who isn’t from Buffalo. I have to say I love visiting up there. I have a second property a little past windham in a small town, and there is truly nothing to do there. That’s where me, and my family hunt. The closest shopping mall is in Albany. I currently live on Long Island 20 minutes from the Hamptons and it’s nothing special.
