Life in WNY, one ZIP code at a time

Western New Yorkers have a lot in common. Snow tales. Cheering for the Bills and Sabres. Knowing where the best wings are. But we all come from different places.

This summer, we will celebrate those differences with weekly photo essays that show life here, segmented by ZIP code. Check back each Sunday for the latest addition to the ZIP Code Project.

All photos are by Buffalo News Photographer Mark Mulville. Click on an image below to view the rest of the related photographs.
