Erie County is a city center located on the western border of New York State covering 1058 square miles and containing 3 cities and 25 community governments.

The City of Buffalo is the second most populous city in the state of New York after New York City with a population of 265000 and is the principal city of the Buffalo Niagara Falls city area. The City itself is home to two of three SUNY Buffalo schools, the Buffalo State College campus, the City campus of Erie Community College and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

The Town of Hamburg is located on Lake Erie and home to the Erie County Fairgrounds and America's Fair, the 3rd biggest county fair in the nation. Buffalo Niagara is being identified nationwide on an expanding listing of accolades that show a crucial change in how Western New York is viewed: in 2010, Forbes Magazine called the region the 10th best area to elevate a family; in 2011, Relocate America positioned Buffalo.

A century later on, the French built Fort Presque Isle, on Presque Isle Bay in the modern City of Erie, to fortify their campaign to take control of the area. The French soon cut 15 miles through the wilderness to add a second ft, Fort LeBoeuf, in what is currently Waterford.

The fledgling negotiation of Erie County, with miles of Lake Erie coastline and an all-natural, secured harbor in Presque Isle Bay, quickly expanded. By 1812, when war broke out with the British, Erie County was simply obtaining its footing as a port town.

The original Erie County Courthouse, put up in 1808, was an ordinary block structure in what is currently West Perry Square. By the 1850s, the expanding county had grown out of the small brick building, and county officials made the decision to build a new structure a half-block west, on West Sixth Street.

Key Industries: Erie County is a major New York commercial and commercial center.
