LOVED FOR:  That's us: Football.  Snow.  Chicken wings. True, while we’re probably best known for that Buffalo “trinity,” the City of Good Neighbors is so much more.  Buffalo just isn’t like other cities.  Did you know the air conditioner, implantable pace maker, windshield wipers, and the electric chair are inventions of Buffalonians?  Show your hometown pride with our colorful magnet!

GOOD TO KNOW: Vinyl. Measures 6 inches wide 4.25 inches tall. Packaged with care in an “eco-friendly” plastic sleeve that is made from plants and is compostable. Designed in Buffalo and manufactured right here in the great state of New York.

BUFFALOVE: The plan of interconnected parks, parkways, and trails that Frederick Law Olmstead designed in Buffalo was finished in 1876, and is considered the country’s oldest urban parks system. Because of its proximity to Niagara Falls, Buffalo was the first U.S. city to feature electric streetlights in 1886. Buffalo’s Statler Hotel was the first hotel in the world to have a private bath with running water in each room. Buffalo was the birthplace of the first railroad suspension bridge in the world, spanning over 825 feet across the Niagara Gorge. In 1881, Maria Love founded the first U.S. daycare center in Buffalo. The Turkey Trot, held Thanksgiving morning, is the oldest continuously run race in America (since 1896). And, the city holds the largest Dyngus Day celebration in the U.S.

In the early 1900s Buffalo had more millionaires per capita than other city in the country; most lived on Delaware Avenue which became known as Millionaires Row. William G. Fargo, co-founder of the American Express Company and Wells Fargo, served twice as mayor of Buffalo during the Civil War. Two presidents, Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, came from Buffalo. President Theodore Roosevelt was sworn into office in Buffalo following the assassination of President William McKinley at the Pan American Exposition in 1901.

The air conditioner, implantable pace maker, windshield wipers, and the electric chair are inventions of Buffalonians. The Ball jar was created in Buffalo by the Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Company. Those towering grain elevators on the Buffalo River? Invented right here in Buffalo in 1842 by Joseph Dart. (And don’t forget our beef on weck, spaghetti parm, loganberry drink, and sponge candy!)

Greetings from – inventive, creative, genuine, ground-breaking, and original – Buffalo, NY!
