Before we chose to buy a house in Derby NY, just south of Hamburg and Buffalo, we first went to neighborhoodscout and searched for the best and worst neighborhoods to live in near Buffalo, New York. Based on crime rates, these are the five most dangerous neighborhoods.

Please do not let this discourage you to live here or, if you have lived here your whole life, don't leave! We just moved back home and are amazed at how great of an area Western New York is. However, every community has its bad apples that contributes to some neighborhoods’ higher crime rates that we thought we should make you aware of.
