What is Amherst really known for?

This blog hasn't even been active for 24 hours and we're already getting criticism, err, feedback. 

Council Member Guy Marlette takes issue with our suggestion that Amherst is "perhaps best known for all the development that has sprung up in the past few decades."

Marlette contends the town is known to most Western New Yorkers for "three amazing school districts, an amazing housing stock that has not suffered wild swings in value, a variety in the housing stock from old to new, small to large," as well as the Northtown Center ice rink, its rankings as a "safest town", and the University at Buffalo's North Campus.

All that got us thinking that Amherst means different things to different people -- both residents and others.

What do you think the true identity of Amherst is?
