Churches, bars, daycares and more...
I currently share office space with a roofing contractor and a daycare/preschool owner. We also work on our nonprofit org from there. I wish I had an estrip.org type platform for my town! I'm just not sure how many people would write fairly consistently.
One of the joys of where I live is that I can walk to my neighborhood bar and the grocery store. My nonprofit is partly focused on revitalizing our downtown (like the Elmwood Village campaign but on a much smaller scale - our population is about 1500) and I really do value walkability. I lived in the DC suburbs from Silver Spring to Laurel and I don't want to have to drive everywhere again. I've got a bike (with basket for the puppy) but I've never ridden in a city.
(e:imk2) asked why I'm moving to Buffalo... graduate school. I plan to show up 8/15. Uh... I guess I need to find housing before then... would you consider craigslist a good option for looking? the weekly housing section of the newspaper? or is it best to spend some time in Buffalo and look in person?
(e:joshua) - I'm in Tioga County *waves*
all - thanks so much for the warm welcome and advice!
My next question: Is there a practical public transportation option from Elmwood to UB North? Or should I look for carpools? Or just expect to drive?

I'll be moving in August, hopefully to the Elmwood area. Got any apartment suggestions for me? I've got two pets - Nisha, a quiet 1.5 year old toy poodle and China Cat Sunflower, a sweet fat lazy black cat. I'll be very sad to leave my elderly grey tiger cat Kitten (17-19 years old) but she needs the stability of our current housing situation and easy access to the outdoors. The closer to Lexington Market the better.
Currently I'm a geek for hire, specializing in QuickBooks and small business financial and IT consulting. I'd love to find an office to hang out in - I'm handy to have around and we can trade my services for space.
I'm so excited about moving! I lived in the DC/Baltimore area for nearly nine years, then moved "home" to northcentral Pennsylvania in 2003. I've missed good food and diversity the most. I'll miss the intergenerational long-term relationships from here...
