The National Post did a good comparison of Hamilton and Buffalo a couple of years ago. What was most interesting is that the population of Buffalo (and its metropolitan area) continue to decline, Hamilton is growing (mostly due to its proximity to the GTA).

"Both are very affordable places to live, where beautiful intown homes can be purchased for a fraction of what you'd pay in Toronto or New York City. And both cities have rush hour traffic without the rush (and the traffic)."

This is a good thing, however, the main reason for this is due to the lack of economic opportunities in both cities.

Another common trait between Hamilton and Buffalo - high property taxes, especially on the residential side.
