From the earliest memories of your VCR, "BUFFALO66" was supposed to be a good flick. But it was sO bad you forgot not to fall asleep 34 minutes in.

if it keeps losing people at the present rate it'll be empty in less than 200 years. What would it look like? A blighted hole of a city with an aged nonwhite population. People only coming into the city for essential services, courts, taxes, medical etc. It'll just be more of what it already is plus barbwire around anything of value. Anybody with a brain can see how fucked up and corrupt it is. Who wants to operate in that environment when other places with their act together are screaming for your business?

Just my two cents.

If you have your act together I guess Miami
Beach is the best place to live. I mean, you ever walk down that boardwalk in February? it's like that 365 days a year. And when you get hot, there ate giant buildings with air conditioned lobbies and restraints and bars all along the sand. Wait I didn't write "restraints and bars" but I clearly need help
Learning how to spell restiruant Shit restaurant yes that's what I meant.

Never been to Florida, nice weather but government doesn't care about people down south. My loser neighbor's big idea of a vacation is to take his family down to Orlando on the in laws dime. I was on Grant street today and this gal was sitting on the bus bench balling her head off with her breast hanging out all scratched and bleeding. I asked her if she wanted an ambulance or the police but she declined. Can only guess what happened. What really irritates me is these middle class guys driving around in nice cars looking for prostitutes. Why don't they get busted and have their mugs on Ch.4 for everyone to see?

Two things need to bring back Buffalo to economic power

1. The oceans significantly intrude on Atlantic coastal areas

2. Fresh water shortages in Atlantic coastal and the Sun Belt

Anyone still in Buffalo after 1950 is a loser.

I haven't been there in about 5 years and do everything outside of it. Medical, entertaiment and everything else.

Apparently nothing has changed in the 40+ years since my wife and I fled the area in search of gainful employment. The city was then as you describe it today. We have never even considered coming back.

It looks like that now. I'm surprised South Buffalo is still mostly White.
