Buffalo Spree
Western New York’s talented young workforce is a large part of why the region is such an exciting and desirable place to live and work. Every month, Buffalo Spree introduces these young professionals to our readers—whether it’s an interview with an up-and-coming nonprofit ED or a story about a hot new restaurant or microbrewery. Our pages are filled with the faces of young WNYers—their histories, their opinions, their dreams. Buffalo Spree publishing is also proud of the twenty- and thirty-somethings on our staff and we encourage them to give their creativity full and vigorous expression. Many of Spree’s freelancers also hold down jobs throughout Buffalo’s PR and marketing workforce; they are the voices of New Buffalo, a Buffalo we are proud to celebrate.
