Buffalo is the second largest city in the U.S. state of New York. It was inhabited by Iroquois natives, founded in 1832 by settlers and grew to become an industrial center in the Great Lakes/Midwest region, specializing in grain products and steel. Production and population was bolstered with the opening of the Erie Canal which connected Buffalo through the Hudson River to New York City, enabling a water route from the West to Europe.

As the city grew during the 20th century, it manufactured planes, cars, and other finished goods, becoming one of the top 10 biggest cities in the country, aided by an expansive railroad network. The opening of the St. Lawernce Seaway and Welland Canal brought about the start of an economic downturn for Buffalo, which was aided by deindustrialization to the U.S. south and Asia. Today, the Buffalo area is home to medical services, education and research.
