The 2nd largest city in New York, Buffalo has a rich history of industrial and social growth.
Its strategic location on Lake Erie and the western terminus of the Erie Canal greatly influenced America's transportation network , from the east coast to the mid-west. As this important transportation node, Buffalo was a major factor in America's ability to grow into an important manufacturing nation.
