Discover South Buffalo Website Launched

Discover South Buffalo Website Launched

www.SouthBuffaloHome.com was created by volunteers from the South Buffalo CREW to welcome everyone to the neighborhoods of South Buffalo.

The new site is a showcase of the many reasons why SB CREW members love where they live, and provides a useful guide for anyone who might buy a home, start a business or visit South Buffalo.

As the page for “Living in SB” says, “When you add it all up, you’d be crazy not to move here. You can escape the high taxes of the suburbs and still live in a safe neighborhood with amazing parks, good schools, caring neighbors, and plenty of stuff to do.” The website provides a great deal of evidence to back that up.
