Practically every city in the Northeastern United States has at least one of these neighborhoods ... a foo-foo, sugary sweet village with a "carriage trade" business district that caters primarily to upper middle class women.
Buffalo has a few such communities; East Aurora is the most famous, but there's also the Village of Orchard Park, and the Village of Williamsville. This thread shows off Williamsville, a few kilometers east of the University at Buffalo South Campus.
Williamsville was founded in the mid-1800s around Glen Falls, where Ellicott Creek plunges over the Ononadaga Moraine. From the 1890s to the 1930s, an interurban line served the village, promoting residential development. Since World War II, Williamsville has evolved into an affluent residential community, increasingly absorbed into the sprawl of Buffalo's booming Northtowns.
Since busy Main Street runs through the heart of Williamsville (four traffic lanes, two parking lanes, and a center "suicide lane" for left turns), there isn't much pedestrian traffic, even with the area's textbook quaintness.
