Buffalo: Big City With Small Town Feeling
Buffalo has actually become one of the larger New York cities, but you would never know it from the warm and casual feeling here. The city is home to an especially strong arts presence, and houses several art collections of note. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has one of the largest modern art collections in the country, and offers free admission once a week. At the Buffalo Botanical Gardens, you can find an overwhelming array of the world's most lovely flowers and herbs, all contained inside an old Victorian building with a glass domed greenhouse."
