Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Buffalo, New York has a rich and diverse history that dates back to the 18th century when it was first settled by the Seneca Native American tribe. The city became an important trading post and transfer point for goods traveling between the Great Lakes and the East Coast. In the early 19th century, Buffalo experienced rapid growth and development due to the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825, which connected the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. This allowed Buffalo to become a major port city and industrial hub, attracting immigrants and industries such as steel production and grain milling. Throughout the 20th century, Buffalo continued to evolve and thrive as a center for commerce, culture, and education. Today, Buffalo is known for its vibrant arts scene, historic architecture, and bustling waterfront. The city’s rich history can be seen in its many museums, landmarks, and vibrant neighborhoods.
