Symbiotic relationship between Charlotte and Buffalo

2 posts in this topic

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.

WFAE: The Buffalo/Charlotte Connection - http://www.wfae.org/wfae/1_218_323.cfm

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 :)
