One love for two misunderstood cities

Paintings about the good old city of savannah. Did you know only 4% of cities in America are safer then Savannah? Its true!

I actually love Savannah, or else I wouldn't live there, or paint pictures about it.

 The city of Buffalo NY has two theories to its name origin. The nice one is that upon seeing the Niagara river, french settlers exclaimed "Beau fleuve!" and the pronunciation stuck storta, if not the spelling.
The other less appealing tale is that Buffalo was named for Buffalo creek. And Buffalo creek was named for people who sold horse meat on the river banks, false advertising it as bison meat.
