A little West Queen West in Buffalo

Trendy, hipsterish part of Buffalo. Some interesting bars and nightlife. Nice, historic residential side streets. Reminded me a little of Toronto's West Queen West areas.

Really good for bar hopping. The crowd varies but I would say mostly a younger crowd. Seems a little sketchy at night but it is generally safe and fun!

What a great little area loaded with shops, restaurants, and bars. Parking can be sticky, but well worth the trouble. Unique little shops, good restaurants serving a variety of cuisine, great architecture, adorable little homes. People are friendly and helpful. Small business is back in Allentown!

Allentown is an interesting neighbourhood in Buffalo with some great Victorian buildings. Lots of dining options in the area as well.

This is a night time area. Bars more than restaurants...nothing open for lunch on a Sunday other than burgers which we were not interested in. So we left to go have lunch elsewhere. Looks like a fun area but fun at night I think.

Great area to stroll around and stop in an interesting variety of shops and delicious foods to try. Pleasant shop keepers that love to discuss their wares and talk about the area. Nice area to visit for an afternoon stroll. Close to Delaware park.
