Buffalo Maps and Orientation

(Buffalo, New York - NY, USA)

Located on the far westerly side of New York State and close to the Canadian border, Buffalo lies alongside Lake Erie and the Niagara River. The city serves as the seat for Erie County and is a part of the sprawling Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area.

Various freeways and major roads intersect and bound the city. The Buffalo Skyway (NY-5) is one such road and heads in a northwest to southeast direction, next to Lake Erie and passing by the Tifft Nature Preserve. The Niagara Thruway (Interstate I-90) connects Kaisertown in the east with Grand Island and the Niagara Falls area to the far northwest.

The eastern side of the city is edged by the New York State Thruway (Interstate I-90), which links West Seneca in the south with Cheektowaga, the Buffalo Niagara International Airport and the Westwood Country Club, before becoming the Youngmann Memorial Highway (Interstate I-290) and joining the Lockport Expressway (Interstate I-990).
