Is Buffalo New York and Orphan City?
I was just honky tonkin around over at this new architecture site (new to me) and discovered that they have several regional forums just like everyplace else. The problem is they have no region that includes most of New York State. It is just cut out for no reason so there is no place to post Buffalo info.
look at the map of their regional forums. The white part has no coverage. THE ONLY PLACE WITH NO REGIONAL FORUM IS UPPER NYSTATE!!!!
I have tried to get them to change what they call the North Atlantic Seaboard Forum into a North East forum but they refuse. I think that they think Buffalo is next to NY City because they keep saying to post in this forum which is described as the American Megalopolis. They don't understand that Buff is not a port of this group of cities.
Here are some links
So I was thinkin
Buffalo New York is considered to be in the Northeast. But it is in many ways much more Midwest. Though it is in New York State it has more in common with Cleveland and Chicago than it does with New York City. It is also next to Canada (you can spend Canadian Money in Buffalo) which further complicates things. Because of this Buffalo suffers an identity crisis.
Many people think that it is near NYC because it is in NY State. In reality it is over 500 miles from NYC on the Great Lakes! Often times NY STATE is not even considered to be a Great Lakes state!
Urban Planet does not even have a regional forum in which to post all things Buffalo.
Is Buffalo and Orphan City?????
