Symbiotic relationship between Charlotte and Buffalo


Recommended Posts

Seems like everybody in Buffalo knows someone or has an immediate family member that has moved to Charlotte. It's THE destination for expats; while there are many that migrate to NYC, Chicago, Atlanta and so on, there's a disproportionately large number of former Buffalonians living in the Charlotte area.

Here's a couple of articles that discuss the symbiotic relationship between Charlotte and Buffalo.

Charlotte Observer: Upstate N.Y. leads charge to Charlotte region - http://www.uslandinvestments.com/articles/070121_upstate_ny_leads_charge_to_charlotte_region.pdf

FWIW, Sarasota and Jupiter in Florida are also a popular destinations for former Buffalonians.

I'm not from Buffalo, but I've lived here for about 3 years or so and I can say that I know a ton of people from Buffalo or upstate New York. Just to put it in perspective, the condo building I live in (in a complex of about 10)... two of my neighbors are from Buffalo. Also, my wife's best friend is from there. They take over a bar called Tavern on the Tracks for every Bills and Sabres game. And just this past season when the Bills played the Panthers down here, there was a huge week long tailgate outside that bar (it's probably a 10 min walk from the stadium). I'm pretty sure there were some guys that just took that week off :)
