Great Neighborhoods in Hamburg, NY

Hamburg, NY Welcome Sign

If you are house hunting in Buffalo’s Southtowns, make sure you keep Hamburg on your short list.  The town’s advantages from a homeowner perspective include the village of Hamburg, its proximity to downtown Buffalo, easy access to Lake Erie activities and the ease of shopping for groceries and household items. 

Residential areas of Hamburg can be found not only in the village of Hamburg, but also in nearby suburban neighborhoods, rural farmland and wooded land.  Hamburg is often considered first by people who work in downtown Buffalo, because their commutes can be short when following Route 5 into downtown.

Great Neighborhoods in Hamburg

The Village of Hamburg

Hamburg’s Village was incorporated in 1874, and has in the past ten years undergone a resurgence in community pride and excellent dining options. 

Those who live in the village can be within walking distance of shopping, dining, exercise and drink!

Village houses are of course older, but many of them are examples of fine architecture and contain desirable elements such as turrets and great light from the outside.

Our home inspector is very aware of the concerns with real estate of this age, and educates buyers about any concerns found with the foundation, electrical, plumbing or other systems of these homes. 


The Scranton/Carnegie area of Hamburg is positioned between Southwestern Blvd. and “the 90”, and is bordered by Sowles Rd. to the north and roughly Camp Rd. on the south.  

According to those on, neighbors there enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and they find to be a quiet, dog-friendly place to live.

Houses there range in price from the mid $140s to mid $300s.

Armor Duells Corners

Armor Duells Road stretches west of the 219, just south of the village of Orchard Park.  Eventually it connects to Hamburg, but not before finding itself the center of an informal development of housing.  Most of this area was farmland and woods prior to the 1960s and ’70s, but today it’s a mix of suburban homes.  They mostly sit closer to the road, making for driveway maintenance an easy chore, although a number of houses in this area are set deep within the woods. 

Boston State Road

Boston State Road connects the towns of Boston, NY and Hamburg together, but not before hosting probably the best neighborhood for high-end real estate in town.  

Boston State Road (Route 391) is where you can find the 18 Mile Creek Golf Course and the Hamburg Brewing Company.  But it’s also where high income earners can purchase multi-million dollar homes.  

Following Boston State Road to the south will lead you to Herman Hill Road, which is adjacent to North Boston.

Sherwood Meadows

Sherwood Meadows is located near the lake shore of Hamburg, north of Howard Rd, and to the west of Southwestern Blvd.  

Its location offers easy access to the NY Thruway, the lake and the Village of Hamburg.  

Ryan Homes in 2020 has actively developed homes there, where you can find houses in the $300s.
