Buffalo, city and port, seat (1821) of Erie county, western New York, U.S. It is located where the eastern end of Lake Erie narrows into the Niagara River. New York’s second largest city, it is the metropolis of a large urban complex that includes the cities of Lackawanna, Lockport, Niagara Falls, and Tonawanda–North Tonawanda, as well as the towns of Amherst, Cheektowaga, Hamburg, Lancaster, and West Seneca. Lake Erie strongly affects Buffalo’s climate, moderating summer and winter temperatures and contributing much of the moisture that produces the city’s renowned heavy winter snowfalls.
