Owner description: The Elmwood Village, one of America's 10 Best Neighborhoods, as designated by the American Planning Association, and Buffalo/Niagara's most vibrant shopping, dining and cultural district, can be enjoyed year-round. Whether you're already in the neighborhood, elsewhere in Western New York, or visiting from across the border, the Elmwood Village is a wonderful destination.

Friendly, welcoming, walkable, and interesting are the first words that pop into my head when I think of the Elmwood Village.
Within a mile you can shop at the Lexington Real Foods Co-op (everyone is welcome, member , or not); you can browse the multitude of shops including gourmet, apparel, and jewelry; you can step inside the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church and The Unitarian Universalist Church (both of which are festooned with incredible stained glass windows), grab a bite of sushi, Thai, Mexican, American, or eat at a high end restaurant; and, simply bask in the beauty of the big sky as it is not marred by tall buildings.
The Elmwood Village is a mere hop north from downtown Buffalo (just head up Delaware or Elmwood Avenue), and also includes the Burchfield Penney Gallery, The Albright Knox (a world class repository of modern art), Delaware Park, Hoyt Lake, The Historical Society, and many other venues worth your time.

This street has lots of neat little shops and restaurants. My wife bought some funky and unique shoes, and I got some good cheap eats. We were both happy.

This is my favorite area of Buffalo. It's a vibrant, walkable area with shops, restaurants, and many people out enjoying themselves. Plenty of places to people watch, grab a coffee, lunch, shop at small boutiques, bookstores and more! The Elmwood Bidwell Farmer's Market is the best market in WNY!
