As much as we love our hometown of Buffalo, NY some outside people are trying to bring us down!

According to a study done by, Buffalo was ranked the #2 worst city in the US-based solely on its crime rate. The website pointed out that Buffalo has a much higher violent crime rate them most cities "Compared to the average, Buffalo has a much higher rate of violent crime. In 2015 alone, there were 41 murders, 1,033 robberies, and 1640 assaults and it was ranked 15th worst city in the nation."

The best news is that we don't care about their dumb survey and know that Buffalo is an awesome place to live. From great sports to outdoor living, to a reborn downtown Buffalo is back baby!!

Both Rochester and Syracuse also make the list, but we kind of agree with that so...we guess parts of the survey are correct!
