Buffalo, NY Employment Information

Buffalo Overview

Buffalo is a picturesque city located on the eastern banks of Lake Erie and the head of the Niagara River. It is the principal city of the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metro area, the largest district in Upstate New York, and the second largest city in the state. It began as a small trading town but grew rapidly when the Erie Canal opened in 1825. By the turn of the 20th century, Buffalo was a major railroad hub, the country’s largest grain-milling center, and the eighth largest city in the United States. But when the trains were rerouted to the neighboring town of Depew and local manufacturers relocated to Asia, Buffalo began to fall out of favor.

It may be smaller than it once was, but the number of Buffalo, NY jobs in emerging sectors continues to grow. Residents enjoy a cost of living that’s 9.9 percent below the national average, which allows them to comfortably afford the median local house price of $129,400. Median household incomes in Buffalo sit at $49,479, a figure which saw Forbes name Buffalo the 10th best place in the United States to raise a family in 2010.
