Cheap Buffalo car hire
Buffalo is New York state's second largest city, encompassed in a cluster of Art Deco spires and glass box skyscrapers - Manhattan in miniature on Lake Erie.
The city's early twentieth-century prosperity, which busted while many other American cities were booming, exempted Buffalo's historic buildings from being demolished and replaced with more modern structures and is now reflected in such architecturally significant buildings such as the towering 1928 City Hall and the deep red terra cotta relief of Louis Sullivan's Guaranty Building on Church Street. The massive abandoned grain elevators, which rise proudly along the Erie waterfront like wonders of the industrial world, provide an interesting architectural counterpoint. Because of its proximity to the Canadian border, Buffalo also has numerous Underground Railroad sites.
A great part of Buffalo's appeal to visitors is that sense of history, with majestic historic buildings and sites around every corner that tell the story of a city that was great once and has all the tools in place to be great again someday.
