Clarence is a census-designated place situated in the Buffalo metropolitan area, which is part of New York, United States.
Clarence is reasonably quiet overall, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder areas, especially around Governor Thomas E Dewey Thruway or one of the 2 airports (Clarence Aerodrome, Potoczak Airport). Parks are distributed sparsely, resulting in them being rather challenging to access from a lot of locations in the census-designated place. Despite that, there are a few public green spaces close by for residents to check out, including Tillman Road Wildlife Management Area and Meadow Lakes Town Park.
The predominant housing types in Clarence are single detached homes and row houses. This part of the Buffalo metropolitan area has a selection of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around 90% of the properties in the census-designated place are occupied by home owners and 10% are occupied by renters. This census-designated place did not experience a single housing boom; the construction of new buildings in Clarence is spread throughout several decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century.
High schools and primary schools are not particularly abundant in Clarence, and consequently not always within walking distance. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and high schools. With respect to eating, house buyers in this census-designated place usually have to use a vehicle to access one of around 20 grocery stores. There are also a few options for those who care about restaurants within walking distance.
A car is an excellent medium of transportation in Clarence. Parking is quite easy. In contrast, it is very challenging for people traveling on foot to navigate this part of the Buffalo metropolitan area since very few daily needs can be met without having to resort to a car.
