After some paperwork at the border (since I am still a Dutch national) I was able to continue my roadtrip. I went to the good/wealthy parts of town to really get a feel of the city's higher end lifestyle.
Downtown Buffalo turns into a complete ghost town on Sundays, Americans really like to stay home on this day. I found a few bars where some hilarious drinking games took place.
The locals were awesome and very friendly and told me tons of tips for in and around Buffalo.
Later that day I drove alongside Elmwood St. which has some fantastic outdoor patio's and expensive houses and manions.
I ended up at Anchor Bar for some epic Buffalo chicken wings. Supposedly it is the place where the first created the Buffalo Wing (anno 1935).
