I lived in Buffalo for many years. Would wait for the bus and have friendly conversation in the past. Most other cities there is zero conversation. Lived in a rough area, but never felt threatened and chatted with neighbors often. Once I had a car, it was never touched and one morning someone actually brushed off the snow. We started a trend of whoever was outside first would brush the snow off in the morning. Very cool people.. Yes we look rough, but Buffalo is a great community.

There was a car flipover in front of my house a few years ago. This is not uncommon.
