I had never been to to this part of Buffalo before, but we had tickets to see an event in the Tralf, so we visited on a Sunday night. My views on this place were OK, but certainly not on par with many other theater...More

Lots of unique theaters and shows. Nice mix of original and restored architecture but still missing a vibe. Local and chain restaurants are to be found in the district along with an art gallery and hostel. Buffalo transit runs right through the heart of the...More

Always something to do here. Live theater, movie theater, shopping and dinning and the best part is the renovations; re-opening of Main St. for the first time in over 30 years cars will share the street with the metro rail come Spring 2014. Every building...More

Rating four stars for the theatres - not for much else. There could be more restaurants down here, but it is a nice place to visit. Besides the theatres that were mentioned, there is TGI Fridays and a few other restaurants that are open @...More
