Snow Plowing Cheektowaga, NY
Cheektowaga is a town in Erie County and a first ring suburb of Buffalo, New York. Cheektowaga has a population of almost 90,000 making it the second largest suburb of Buffalo.
Incorporated as a town in 1839, Cheektowaga was formed by a division of land with neighboring Amherst. Cheektowaga was originally a thriving rural town with train stations and trolley lines connecting people and goods to the rest of Western New York.
Over time, agrarian interests gave way to subdivisions, transportation hubs, and industrial expansion during and after the World War II. To this day Cheektowaga still has a large blue-collar and Polish-American population with ties to Buffalo’s East Side where most Polish immigrants originally settled when they came to the area.
Cheektowaga has an advantageous location with multiple modes of transportation including rail, air, and three main interchanges of the New York State Thruway (Route 33/ Kensington Expressway, Interstate 190, and Interstate 90)
The Buffalo Niagara International Airport is located in Cheektowaga, serving the entire region, including Canadian residents in Southern Ontario and Toronto. This high volume of traffic makes the Buffalo Niagara International Airport the busiest airport in New York State outside of New York City.
The Walden Galleria Mall, the largest mall in the Buffalo-Niagara area, is also located in the heart of Cheektowaga, serving an estimated 18 million shoppers annually. The industrial, residential, and transportation system growth that Cheektowaga has experienced makes it high volume area for goods, services, people, and commerce.
The Buffalo National Weather Service office is located at the airport so Cheektowaga plays a key role in documenting the weather in the region.
In Cheektowaga, the snow season lasts close to six months, beginning in November and lasting through part of April. Cheektowaga historically sees the most snowfall in the 31 days centered around February 28th. Even with its inland location Cheektowaga still gets hit with lake-effect snow off of Lake Erie which has been the cause of well-known storms throughout the region.
In the past 10 years, Cheektowaga has ranged from a low of 36.7 inches (the lowest on record) up to 129.9 inches of snow in one winter. And, though that seems like a lot, the highest recorded snowfall in Cheektowaga was 199.4 inches due to the Blizzard of ‘77.
