Random Thought

8 Oct

Do you think the popular image and reputation of Cheektowaga, Tonawanda, and Lackawanna would be different if they were instead named Appleton, Swiftwater and Limestone Hill?

NT Erie Canal

Does the name of the town equal its destiny & brand? Do you think more people would want to move to an address in a trendy-named town, rather than a respectful but funny sounding (to modern ears) Seneca name? Is it a coincidence that Buffalo’s (funny name itself) fastest growing suburbs are named Amherst and Clarence? Just sayin’.
