When One Thinks of Lively, Upcoming Green U.S. Cities. . .

probably the last city you think of is Buffalo.  Well, over at Next American City, Chris Hawley thinks you’ve got it all wrong:

Buffalo is compact, diverse, and connected.  Thanks to a new zoning code in the words, we will continue to develop smart and capitalize on our place-based assets.  We do have a long way to go. We’re a blue collar town and we understand the meaning of hard work. Work hard we will!
