#dan d on Jan 16, 2017 :
your price for apartments is rather high in area out side center I worked for a people where most apartments were 2 and 3 bedroom and averaged about 500$ each your figures don't add up
#Jimmy tay on Apr 03, 2014 :
Hi,

I agree with the prices of beers you pay for at restaurants in Buffalo but the beers you buy in a case is significantly less. You can buy a case 24 pack of local beer for less than $20 . So why is it $3 per bottle in your estimates?

Thanks
