I came to Lackawanna with my family 6 years ago. They have roots here. Moved from Lakenheath England. I love it. Lackawanna has what the other suburbs of Buffalo don't. Culture. Prime realestate right on the water and the gateway to the southtowns. I mean, route 5 should be bustling with restaurants and plazas.... but there isnt even a grocery over there. why is that? How many cars pass lackawanna on route 5 at 6,7,8am in the morning and 4,5,6 pm at night? Huge business. The 1st Ward should be wealthy but its not. Im a UB college grad who would love to stay and raise his children here. Have them go to Lackawanna High and play sports with this close-knit community. But it IS ugly out here. Nothing cosmetically great. I want to walk up to Ridge Road like the people can on Elmwood in Buffalo. Arab fabric shops, Slav shops, african american foods. all of our prized blood lines are not being flashed like a trophy. I just want the others to be jealous of US for once. and give folks a REASON to come here. Name 1 thing buffalonians NEED that only Lackawanna can provide........still waiting......NOTHING! We need to change that too.

Do you know why there's nothing on ridge road?
It's because Lackawanna Empire Zone closed and ran out all the business along ridge to build a new post office.
According to William Eagan the Post Office that will save Lackawanna!!
If that's what will save Lackawanna maybe it's time Buffalo took it over
