Downtown apartments facilitate an active life
White picket fence suburb living has its perks; however when you want an active lifestyle full of culture and exploration, living in the city center in Buffalo New York can’t be beat. If you want easy access to top-notch eateries, shops and entertainment venues, choosing to rent or buy a condo or apartment in Buffalo, New York’s city center could be just the ticket to your lifestyle. Living central gives you access to amenities and fun right out your front door.
Living downtown gives you built in convenience. Walking to work or play not only makes arriving more rewarding, but can save you money in the long run; both on vehicle costs and parking. When you can walk to favorite destinations, you gain opportunities to exercise and control your environmental impact. There’s no need to search for parking spaces, sit in traffic jams or wait for taxis to arrive. You’ll also notice new attractions in your city rather than speeding past them in a car.
When people live in downtown condos or apartments, they often find jobs in the same area. Many companies prefer to hire employees with nearby homes. If you walk to your workplace, you’ll never arrive late because your vehicle won’t start or you can’t reach the bus stop on time.
For those times you need to go further afield, downtown Buffalo has exceptional metro-rail and public busses to get around the city; still without the need for a car.
Inhabitants of downtown apartments benefit from particularly well-maintained sidewalks and streets. This improves safety, especially during the winter. Road maintenance crews prioritize the removal of snow, ice and potholes in this portion of the city. Downtown is also well-lit, and access to emergency services is swift.
Another safety advantage is that you’re less likely to drink and drive. If you live downtown, you may enjoy alcoholic beverages at a bar, restaurant or festival without arranging transportation. This reduces stress and time constraints when going out to party.
