Thank you so much guys !!! BTW... i live & work in Michigan & my main reason of relocating is to be near Toronto. It takes 4 hr. drive from Michigan to Toronto that's why i'm planning to move to a nearer place. I think Niagara Falls is much much nearer to Toronto compared to Buffalo. Right now i'm still confuse where... if i'm going to settle in Niagara Falls, i don't think so there's a lot of restaurants, bars & entertainments there. But if i'm going to settle in Buffalo, i'm scared of the heavy snow. I really don't know guys...

your best bet if you are afraid of Buffalo for silly reasons such as too much snow, would be Lewiston.
It is a pretty town with an intact "village" or town atmosphere with shops and great restaurants along a main street type strip. It is very picturesque and the Lewiston-Queenston bridge crossing into Canada is right there.
closest to Toronto and not too far to venture to Buffalo and Niagara Falls is directly south.
and Buffalo is only further from Toronto (than Niagara Falls/Lewiston) by like 25-30 minutes.
and this will be the nicest highrise development in the Buffalo-Niagara Metro whenever it gets started: http://www.gatescircle.com/home.html

Guys... thank you so much. BTW... i'm from Michigan & my main reason of relocating is to be near Toronto. It takes 4 hr. drive from Michigan to Toronto that's why i'm planning to move to a place nearer to Toronto & i think Niagara Falls, NY is much much nearer compared to Buffalo. Are there any restaurants & bars in Niagara Falls, New York?

Is this thread corrupted or something?

- From the forum listing, it says DallasTexan posted at 10:47, yet I don't see it. (Edit: I post this, go out to the forum, reload, and suddenly Page 5 appears).
- I posted earlier this morning and it disappeared.
- I tried posting this afternoon and it kept giving me errors, and didn't appear to work. Now it shows as a double post? (Edit: Quadruple post!!! Ditto gmb.)

To quote the old Bruce Smith commercials, "Bad things, man. Bad things."

Where in Michigan, eastern I assume? I wouldn't think the snowfall totals from Buffalo proper and northward would be too much different from what you're already familiar with. Our winters just happen to be shrouded in mystery and misconception.

Niagara Falls isn't really significantly closer to Toronto, time-wise. It is, but consider that the QEW between Ft. Erie and the 420 is literally a straight-line drag strip, I would base the decision moreso on what you're looking for in a sense of lifestyle; i.e. what you're looking for in a place to live, whether it be Buffalo, NF, or elsewhere and what those places have/don't have to offer. The time savings is negligible, and all your delays are more than likely to be in the Hamilton-Toronto stretch. Certainly a drop in the bucket compared to your current situation. The periodic 15-20 extra minutes on a highway may not be worth a cut in your personal quality of life where you spend 15 hours a day, if you know what I mean.

There are many, many people in central/southern NH who commute 60 miles/3 hours one-way to work in Boston, just to avoid property taxes! I don't see the sense, but it's all in what you're looking for, you have to make the decision based on what you want and expect.

As for bars in Buffalo, I'm not the one to ask, not my cup of tea. You have the 'Chip Strip' which seems to be growing if not thriving, but not much more in terms of centers (but probably better than anything NFNY has to offer). Put bluntly, you'd be helping to add to critical mass were you to move downtown. I'm sure DT could guide you to a few Polish 60+ fish fry/bingo hall/pubs in Chicktawasa if you asked!

Bars and Restaurants in Buffalo are concentrated on Chippewa St, Allen St, Elmwood Ave, and Hertel Ave. that is not to say there aren't other areas with bars and restaurants, but these are the most heavily concentrated areas.

As for Niagara Falls, Pine Ave. is "Little Italy" and Third St. is a burgeoning night life strip of activity.

No logic to this comment as Sep 1977 was 9 months after the Blizzard of 77 which was in January. For your theory on the correaltion to be correct then last January would have had to have been bad.

Either way move to Niagara County and leave the snow behind.

Also Downtown Toronto to Lewiston takes about one hour. (Eaton Ctr. Parking to bridge.)

I don't know how you missed this guys but http://www.usaniagara.com/projects_display.asp?id=1
is as good as your going to do in NF USA right now and in the forseeable future. It's in the heart of downtown and apparently offers views of the falls. Not sure what your willing to pay though gmb, as these apartments are described as "luxuary". In this region though that only means ~ $1000/month. Hope this helps.
