I don't know about anyone else, but I sometimes forget just how many towns, villages, and hamlets are in New York State and Western New York. Most people know the big towns: Orchard Park, Amherst, Hamburg, West Seneca, Lockport, etc., but what about really small towns? Ones you may have never even heard of.

Doing some research, it's pretty amazing just how many towns are in New York State and more amazing, how many I had no idea existed.

I think it's fascinating so many tiny towns are out there. Towns you might pass through and not even realize you just passed through a town. Maybe it has one stoplight and a few stores and you think nothing of it.

Personally, I find this stuff fascinating and these super small towns are the fabric of this country and Western New York.

Thanks to stats and information from New York Upstate, along with US Census info.
