City GuideCheektowaga

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." (-Mark Twain)

Cheektowaga is Iroquoian meaning_Land of the Crabapples, _but you won't find any of those (whatever those are) here today.This town of 88,226 people is the second largest suburb of Buffalo, New York and has I-90 cutting through its center. Cheektowaga is a census designated place in Erie County and spans 29.5 square miles of land. The town was formed from Amherst back in 1829, and then reformed and reduced in size in 1851 after the formation of West Seneca. Originally a rural farming area pre-World War II, once the war broke out, the post World War subdivision boom brought in major factories, such as the Westinghouse Electric Corporation. This area has since become known for its hard working, blue collar citizens that make up much of its population even today. Although the town suffered decline during the 70s, 80s and early 90s, it is rapidly growing and attracting new businesses because of its excellent location. Surrounded by Buffalo, Seneca, Amherst, Lancaster and Depew, this town is primed for an economic boom!

Preparing to Move

Things you should consider and plan out before you move

There are a few things you should consider before you decide which area of Cheektowaga is calling your name. Where you work in relation to where you live can be very important if you are trying to avoid long commutes, so that should be at the top of your list of things to think about. This is a densely urban town, beautiful yes, but again, very urban! For those that love the city, but want to live in the suburbs, this is the perfect little town for you!

Once you have figured out where your work is located, unless you commute via the Internet, you can begin your search. This will be best accomplished by enlisting the help of a local agent or apartment hunter, local to Cheektowaga that is. Since the vacancy rate for the town is a low 5.9%, you want to give yourself at least 4-6 weeks to search. This will relieve some of the stress associated with moving and all of the paperwork, packing and unpacking that comes with the territory. Having your papers in order will help speed up the process. This is referring to having your current identification available, your work and previous rental references and history readily available, as well as having enough money on hand to cover certain fees associated with both applying and securing a residence. First and last months rent is a typical security deposit for most rentals nowadays, and if you have pets, expect to cough up another security deposit for your little friends. That is pretty much the basics of what you need to have and when you should begin your search. Remember, don't rush into anything if you do not truly love it! Moving once is difficult enough, so make your wish-list of requirements for your new home and leave a little room for flexibility where you can afford it!

Neighborhoods

Cayuga Creek Rd / Union Rd: Covered with shade trees, this beautiful neighborhood is easily affordable by most standards. Even though this is an urban neighborhood, it feels secluded and somewhat suburban in nature. Located on the southwestern side of Cheektowaga, it features a Peregrin's Landing Senior Community for those who are considering retirement. If that's not your pace yet, there are some beautiful single family homes, some with pools as well! The vacancy rate is at 5.9%, so while the supply is stretched thin, there are still vacancies out there. This neighborhood is very quiet, peaceful and walkable. The commute is relatively short also, which if you have driven in Buffalo, you know is rare! Whether you walk, drive, take the train or ride the bus, this area is easily accessible and practically pain free to navigate!

Bellevue: This neighborhood is considered to be a hamlet of Cheektowaga. It is nestled between Union Rd and the Depew border. A local favorite is the Belleview Hotel, a bar and restaurant that has been around since the early 19th century. Talk about charm and longevity! The average price for rent is moderate, not overly expensive at all. Predominantly made up of row houses and single family stand-alone homes, this area is mostly owner occupied. The commute is pretty easy from this neighborhood because of the variety of transportation modes available. Many drive their own vehicles, but a larger percentage tend to take the train, bus or just hoof it to work. This is a wonderful neighborhood for those just beginning their careers or just starting a family. It is affordable and close to everything you might need!

Cleveland Hill: Cleveland Hill is an area of town located on the north town line. This neighborhood is slightly more expensive than other areas of town. Many upper level executives, professional managers and professional service representatives choose to call this area home. Mostly older, well established homes built between 1940 and1969 are located here, adding some serious charm and grace to the neighborhood that lovingly tends and cares for these beautiful old abodes.

Forks: This neighborhood is also considered a hamlet of Cheektowaga and is located near Union Rd and Broadway. Well educated professionals tend to favor this area of town for its easy access and beautifully cared for homes. It is typical to see row houses, all charming, as well as high rise apartments and condominiums. It's quite a mix up of home styles, but when you have a growing population, sometimes the only place to go is up!

Doyle: A neighborhood near the western town line, and perfect for those looking for inexpensive rental prices with a great location! The vacancy rates are pretty low in this area and the average commute is laughable when compared to more congested cities in New York. Most experience a short 15-30 minute commute on average... not too shabby after a long day! This neighborhood is an eclectic mix of ages, ethnicities and professions. The young and old are out walking through the neighborhood as often as possible because it is so foot-path friendly for those who are careless.

William St / Vern Ln: This neighborhood is a fun, very urban area of town with single family homes, a few apartments and a smattering of row houses. It has a good mix of owners and renters with a low vacancy rate and excellent local restaurants within walking distance of most of the homes. Bob's Popular Pizza is one such establishment the locals flock to for pie's that will make you drool the moment you walk in the restaurant! This is a very peaceful, relatively quiet neighborhood that attracts families and young professionals alike.

Wherever you end up looking, we wish you happy hunting!
