Amherst Named Best Place To Live In New York State
It looks like Western New York still remains the best place to live in all of New York State!
According to an article in Money Magazine where they ranked the best place to live in every State, Amherst is the best in New York.
In New York’s western corner, Amherst is a hub for students from the University of Buffalo, Daemen College, Erie Community College, and Bryant and Stratton College. A 15-minute drive from Buffalo (and only 15 minutes from Canada), it’s in close proximity to Niagara, while boasting a great education system and very low crime rate of its own. There’s also plenty of history: Amherst State Park has a Veterans Memorial and the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, a 3.5-acre recreation of America’s earliest days, features objects dating back to the pre-American Revolution era.
The ranking was based on crime rates, median household income, cost of living, education, diversity, and ease of living.
