Cheektowaga, New York
Cheektowaga is a town with a population of about 88K people. Cheektowaga is the second-largest suburb of Buffalo and gets its name from the Seneca word for “Land of the Crabapple”. Home to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, Cheektowaga is considered a major regional transportation hub. It was not until well after the American Revolutionary War that European-American settlers began to live here permanently. The Seneca had been forced to cede most of their land to the United States after the war, as they had been British allies. Originally a rural farming area, the town was extensively developed for suburban housing during the post-World War II subdivision boom of the 1950s. The town maintains a strong blue-collar presence and a large Polish-American community. A perfect town for residents, visitors, and businesses alike. Home to Villa Maria and Empire State Colleges residents have access to public, private, vocational and continuing education programs for all levels of interest and vocations.
