Merged: Moving to Buffalo, NY. Any Polish neighbours?

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone here lives in Buffalo, NY and if there are PL neighborhoods. Here in NJ, I can get everything I need, but not sure about up there. Does anyone have knowledge of this area?

Buffalo has a a huge Polonian population. A resident of Buffalo once told me that the city is practically run by Polish-Americans

Not many Poles there nowadays; they're just Americans of nth generation Polish descent... but many of them do seem to continue some of their forefathers' traditions...

BTW Have you seen Buffalo '66?

Not many Poles

Not if you define a Pole as someone from Poland, but Buffalo and vicinity is teeming with PolAms, Ampols, Polonian or Americans of Polish ancestry, descent or heritage.

I hope you do not share the skewed notion of one particularly obnoxious poster (temporarily on extended leave from PF) that a scrap of paper, not cultural awareness, heritage or DNA, determines a person's nationality.

Please focus on the thread and not on other posters.

If any of you have actually been to Buffalo for dyngus day then one would know that there are not many true Polish people. No one actually knows more than maybe 5 words. If you ask around if people are from Poland or of Polish decent many will say no, they are just there to drink. While it was fun, especially getting free drinks for actually being from Poland. Its not like everyone in buffalo is polish, yes a larger community than in Rochester.

Jardinero, i definitely agree with what you said many nth generation poles there.
