Embarrassing Foursquare Mayorships of WNY

blog by BuffaloDotCom  • 

Inspired by Buzzfeed’s “15 Most Depressing Foursquare Mayorships,” I decided to highlight some of Western New York’s least coveted Foursquare mayorships. For those of us having a blast with geo-tracking games, we all think twice about “checking in” at the local all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet for fear that we’ll become mayor, the person who most visits that particular venue.

Here are some of the area’s most embarrassing mayorships:

Weight Watchers, 8238 Transit Road (@Maple), East Amherst, New York

Mayor: Kathy M.

(“Lay off me, I’m starving!” - Chris Farley, GAP Girls skit on SNL)

OBGYN Associates - West Seneca, 3050 Orchard Park Road, West Seneca, New York

Mayor: Laryssa L.

(TMI, Laryssa. TMI.)

Taco Bell/KFC, 170 Abbott Rd, Buffalo, NY 14220

Mayor: Jackie M.

(We wonder if she prefers Taco Bell or KFC)

Attica Correctional Facility, 639 Exchange St, Attica, New York 14011

Mayor: Peter K.


Dollar Tree, 2429 Military Road, Niagara Falls, NY

Mayor: Catharine B.

(Hey, big spender.)

Wentland Funeral Home & Monuments, 10634 Main St. ,North Collins, New York 14111

Mayor: Frank B.

(Our condolences, Frank.)

Brylin Hospital, 1263 Delaware, Buffalo, New York 14209

Mayor: Kimberly B.


SUNY Buffalo State Parking Lot Y, Iroquois Drive, Buffalo, New York 14222

Mayor: Chaz G.

(Hey, Chaz, desperate for a mayorship?)

XXX Adult VHS Depot, 1225 Lakeshore, Ontario

Mayor: Robbie H.

(Get a hobby. No, that’s not a legit hobby, Robbie.)

Colonie Lounge, 1795 Hertel Ave (@ Voorhees Ave), Buffalo, NY 14216

Mayor: Christopher C.

(For those of you not in the know, the Colonie is a strip club, though some like to refer to it as a “cigar bar.” Truth’s out, Christopher C.)

TAGGED: allentown, elmwood, hertel, south buffalo
