Downtown: The Heart of the City

Downtown Buffalo has undergone a radical transformation in recent years. On the north end, the vicinity of Ellicott and Huron Streets has seen the development of a host of new restaurants, bars and breweries. On the south end, new hotels, eateries, shops and family-friendly attractions are popping up along Buffalo’s waterfront at Canalside. Chippewa Street is downtown’s entertainment and nightlife district with dining options running from haute cuisine to hot dogs. Nearby you’ll find Shea’s Performing Arts Center with its iconic Buffalo blade sign towering over the city’s Theater District. All this activity is set against the backdrop of downtown’s numerous historical landmarks and architectural wonders — including the Art Deco grandeur of City Hall overlooking the McKinley Monument and the beautiful gardens of Niagara Square.
