Road and rail transport of goods became a more viable means of transporting goods over water transportation on which Buffalo initially flourished. Compounding this was the opening of St. Lawrence Seaway that enabled bypassing Buffalo altogether in the transportation of goods. Improvements to electricity transmission removed the advantage that Buffalo held in the energy requirements of industry.

The final nails in its coffin were a combination of other factors. Actions of the State and local administration only made Buffalo unattractive. The loss of industrial activity was hastened “high taxes, burdensome regulations, and pro-union laws” (Glaezar, 2007). The high property taxes coupled with the failure of the city administration to provide the safety and good schools were reasons for exodus of city residents. Racial violence, crime and lack of leadership at a time of crisis plunged Buffalo into its decline to virtual death (Glaezar, 2007).
