Bidwell Parkway

Many consider this neighborhood Buffalo’s true “downtown,” given its bustling shopping district, but Elmwood Village is much more. It is  a neighborhood of gracious nineteenth century homes, many with welcoming front porches. It is the location of Buffalo’s museum district, with three major cultural institutions. It is a place of beautiful front gardens, lush pocket parks, and Buffalo’s most popular farmers market. EV has it all.
