Elmwood Village One of Nation's Ten Great Neighborhoods

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Buffalo's Elmwood Village is one of the ten "Great Neighborhoods in America." The American Planning Association awarded the designation Tuesday in recognition of the Elmwood strip's "broad spectrum of cultural and social assets."

"We're honored that Elmwood Village is one of a select few neighborhoods in the country to be singled out by APA," said Christine Pyne, Elmwood Village Association President. "The residents and community leaders deserve enormous credit for supporting the economic and cultural vitality of this unique neighborhood."

Officials say the Great Neighborhoods designation will put the Elmwood Village on par with such famous places as Boston's North End and Georgetown in Washington.
