We asked and you have spoken. In a recent post shared to our InstagramFacebook, and Twitter, we ask our followers to finish this sentence, “Buffalo would be so much better if we had ______.” While many agree that our city is already great the way it is, there are some Buffalonians who weren’t afraid to name a few things they would like to see change in Buffalo. Some of these are a bit far fetched in terms of actually happening but we can always dream right? From sports and transportation to fast food spots and weather, here’s the most common answers we received:

1. More development put into using the waterfront to it’s full potential

2. A Bills Super Bowl win

3. A Stanley Cup win for the Sabres


4. A better public transportation system to connect the city and the suburbs

5. An NBA team – bring back the Braves

6. Better roads and no potholes
