Buffalo City Hall Niagara Square WNY

The Huffington Post has determined Buffalo is the eighth most dangerous city in the United States.

The 2013 ranking was based, in part, on the Queen City’s high poverty rate and continued issues with gang violence. However, the article noted the murder rate in Buffalo is at its lowest point in the last 10 years.

Topping the list was Detroit, followed by Baltimore, Maryland and Oakland, California.
