New York State is home to several large cities and old, impressive neighborhoods. Is this once prominent neighborhood abandoned?

New York State was once the gateway to the west. The Erie Canal brought millions of people from New York City across the state. Along the way, many new cities were established. Albany, Utica, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo all become cities because of their locations along or near the canal. Hundreds of thousands, and even millions of people would settle in these places establishing businesses and growing them all at a fast pace.

The final stop on the Erie Canal Buffalo, New York, in particular, became one of the biggest cities in the world because of it. Over a million people settled in and around the bustling and booming city. Grain trade and steel making made the city the place to be up until the 1960s when steel production fell off. Buffalo was once home to some of the richest and most powerful people in the world, and they all congregated in one place.
