Buffalo is a very friendly city. I am confident making this deduction after having walked and/or run through a number of cities. People will start chatting with you while you're walking; they'll share stories and joke with you. Heck, even outside the city, Buffalove runs deep. One summer on Cape Cod, we were driving in A. Scott's car, which happens to have a Buffalo Bills license plate frame, and the driver of another car rolled down her window at an intersection after getting our attention. She shouted that she noticed our plate frame and wanted to know if we were Buffalonians. Apparently she had lived in Buffalo for a number of years and absolutely loved the city, the people, everything. It was like she was saying, "Tell Buffalo I said thank you!" It's no secret that Buffalo is just a really big small town with lots of friendly people.
