Reviewed June 6, 2012

My daughter and I get the feeling once and a while that we have to go to the Elmwood Strip to eat and walk around. Very laid back and comforting.

“What City life should be”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

After spending many years living and working in cities in the deep South, it is refreshing to return to a neighborhood of eclectic shops that is occupied by people not trapped in their automobiles. It is neither a fancy or snooty shopping district, nor an overcrowded NYC-style street, but a comfortable and friendly neighborhood street with an abundance of places to shop, eat, and people watch. It is close to Buffalo State College, Delaware Park, the Albright-Knox, and many more galleries and 19th century architectural wonders. Some cities have similar streets, but Elmwood stretches for miles, and no one section overwhelms any other as it stretches from Allentown north.

“Lots of new and interesting places to see”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Very lovely area - about a mile or so of nice shops, interesting restaurants - ate in 2 of them which were both good.
Parking was decent during the day - don't know about at night.
